review 1: This sci-fi short story, being the prequel to Ness' The Knife of Never Letting Go, gripped me from the very first sentence, and well, never let go. Twelve going on thirteen-year old Viola relates the harrowing account of her family's travels of leaving the comforts of home for that of New World, their new planet to be colonized. Not everything will go as planned. Ness' breakneck speed of storytelling and emotional narrative here left me very much excited to read on in this series.
