I must be honest. I am not a fan of futuristic science fiction. Nor do I usually read teen novels. Well, Ryan Schneider has changed my mind about both. This book is entertaining and written like a movie. I would have liked less descriptive paragraphs. However, just the same, it was a very good novel. I recommend this novel for teens who love science fiction.
