The Water That Falls on You from Nowhere: A Tor.Co&hellip by John Chu
5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it, 7 Mar 2014
A wonderful story that I read as part of a anthology. It's understated and beautiful, and I always appreciate books written with non-straight, non-white main characters. Diversity gives us a window into a parallel world.

Wow. An amazing book that stuck with me long after I finished it. An excellent novel in terms of characterisation, plot, pacing and any other metric you care to use. Like the best SF, it explores human nature in depth. There are no heroes in this book, only misguided people trying their very best to do right by themselves and their families.
MILA 2.0: Origins: The Fire by Debra Driza
3.0 out of 5 stars Typical of the genre, 23 Sep 2013
Girl goes to school in a new place, feels slightly different to everyone and then finds out she is. A typical fantasy of kids who feel they don't fit in, "maybe I don't fit in because there's something really special about me". I can't judge the book on this snippet, but it didn't encourage me to buy the full text. For a better take on the different-for-a-reason, teenage-narrator-discovering-it-through-the-book theme, try the Adoration of Jemma Fox.
