review 1: Maybe it's because I never took Physics or I like books with a little more action, but this was not one of my favorite books. 16 year old Loa had a pretty normal life considering her baby sister Asta was diagnosed with a genetic disorder that would leave her a permanent infant. Then, Asta died. Asta was the sun that Loa's family revolved around. Not too long after Asta's death, one of Loa's friends dies. Loa is afraid of death. She is afraid to go to sleep because of her nightmares and the "bony guy". Each chapter begins with a physics word problem or concept that were all completely foreign to me. It was hard to reach the end but the point of the story is whether Loa can escape from her fear of death enough to live.
review 2: I tend to read for voice
... morefirst: voice is that thing that grabs me and pulls me along through a story. And this one did--I couldn't put this book down. The one thing I can say for Blythe Woolston is that she has nailed the voice of her character: smart, bone-dry wit, struggling but heroic. The Freak Observer is clever in the best possible way. You love the characters--even the broken ones. Wonderful work. Highly recommended. less

Not sure what to make of this, so I will give it 3 stars out of confusion.
Really interesting. I love the mix of teen angst and astrophysics!
interesting writing style, open-ended but satisfactory ending
A very deep read that gives you a lot to think about.
Well-written, but darker than I can really enjoy.
