Staff Reviews


If you haven't been reading Stephen McCranie's Space Boy, you are missing out on a wonderful graphic story that has delightful characters, engaging story lines, and a lot to love. Part 4 of the saga just came out in print in July and part 5 comes out in November, so you have plenty of time to catch up. This is one of those books that had me staying up late into the night to read, I couldn't put it down! From the first chapter McCranie draws you into the world of Amy, a young girl whose world as she knows it is about to change completely. Amy has such a unique way of looking at the world and her excitement about the little things fills you with curiosity as you read. That's not to say her world is all easy either. As she confronts new experiences, global organizations, and deadly robots, she also learns a lot about friendship, family, and the things that matter most. McCranie does a great job of exploring larger conflicts and intense relationships while keeping things appropriate and reachable. This would be a great book to read as a family or individually for adults and middle grade kids.

Description


A sci-fi drama of a high school aged girl who belongs in a different time, a boy possessed by emptiness as deep as space, an alien artifact, mysterious murder, and a love that crosses light years.

To Amy, everyone has a flavor. Jemmah, her best friend from the colony, is the flavor of pineapple and jalapeño. Cassie, from Earth, is like red pepper.

After being forced to leave her space-colony home when her dad was fired, Amy starts to adapt to a new life on Earth. High school seems difficult at first, but a close group of friends begin to make the transition easier for her.

At the same time, Amy finds herself fascinated with a mysterious boy named Oliver, the only person Amy has yet to be able to place a flavor for.
