The Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly by P. T. Jones

Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly - Paul Tremblay, Stephen Graham Jones

The Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly by P. T. Jones is a cleverly written book for children ages twelve & up.  The dialogue has just the right amount of snarkiness.

It is well done for the time when teens are not always comfortable with their peers & environment. It has touches of crush/romance as well as science fiction.

"She laughs, thinking she can embarrass me more than I can her.  Oh, Mother."

It's a fun story to read & moves fast.  Because it kept my interest, I gave it four stars.

"The kids form a circle around the tree.  They're full of righteous sugar & corn syrup, & they jump & throw their arms in the air like they're about to kill Piggy.  Lord of the Flies is the one summer book I got to, all right?"

I received a complimentary copy from ChiTeen & NetGalley.  That did not change my opinion for this review.
