Journal Entry 1 by wingAzukiwing from Miami, Florida USA on Tuesday, April 18, 2023
Eleven-year-old Thomas Derwent is moving - not to another town or city, but to another planet. He and his father have completed their research mission on Earth and are due to return to their home planet.

Except that Thomas remembers nothing of his planet and he wants to stay with his friends and be part of the school's nativity play.

It's an interesting set up, but it feels like for a good part of the book nothing is going on. It is a race against time, but mostly spent in passive waiting. Especially on the father's part, who easily spends a day or two just sitting around. Unless the author wants to make a satire about bureaucracy, it really makes no sense.

As part of the story takes place in Edinburgh, I will take this to the BC Con for release.
