These four kids, transplanted from another time and place, may sound uncannily wise, but in their world, the life span is much shorter--their age 14 is smarter than our present day 30 and up.
Lots of quotable quotes and memorable scenes. I enjoyed seeing skin-heads put in their place while the dark-skinned teens show their mettle. The domineering father, the son who wants to do more than inherit his dad's carpet business, and a selfish diva of a girlfriend may come across as cliches, but they keep tension and conflict going, and readers turning pages.
I also enjoy the lovely prose and the eloquent insights of Sita in particular. Even Ty has his occasional moving speeches with quotable quotes.
Nobody is killed off (you'd be surprised how many YA novels do this, nowadays, to my horror and refusal to read more of that sort of thing); the kids make it back home, in the end (you knew they would!); and the lives they touched in modern L.A. are better because of them.
In all, it’s a story 21st Century YA readers are sure to enjoy.
Thanks to NetGalley for sending me an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
