    Another interesting read with the TarValon Book Club. This novel won a lot of Children's Book Awards in the early 21st century and has been on my "To-Read" list for about 5 years now. Looking forward to finally reading it.
    How about you?

    Like Primary Inversion, this one is available on Audible.com so I plan to listen to it. I'd rather start around the time that someone else will be reading so post if/when you're planning to start and I'll pick up my copy then.

    I started reading it and I do like the way the parallel universe is constructed, being different than ours in one key aspect.

    I got to page 99, before I gave up. I just don't have time for a book that I don't want to read... It wasn't my kind of book it looked like. :cheese
