Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
Spin - Robert Charles Wilson

Series: Spin #1

 

I changed my mind. Three stars feels a little too generous for this so I'm going with 2.5.

 

It's a great concept and wanting to find out what had happened kept me reading. Basically, one night all the stars go out and humanity discovers the entire planet has been enveloped in a weird opaque (-ish) membrane that has a simulated sun but doesn't actually let anyone see through it. And somehow Earth's perception of time has slowed way down with respect to the rest of the solar system. So Wilson invokes crazy physics in an interesting way because the general consensus is that some alien race has done this...for reasons.

 

So I really wanted to found out more about these "Hypotheticals" (the aliens) and what they had done to the Earth, but I struggled to get through the book because I didn't actually like any of the characters. Tyler was tiresome, Jason was your sort of typical nerd genius, I got tired of E. D., the abusive father (verbal and mental abuse, not physical) real fast, and I had zero patience for Diane's desire to ruin her life by running off to find religion and marry a controlling husband. Tyler's thing for Diane was more pathetic than romantic, and some of what I would have found way more interesting (the stuff that was happening to Jason) got glossed over near the end because Tyler just wasn't around for most of it.

 

I know Wilson already played the crazy physics card with the Spin membrane but I just couldn't suspend my disbelief very well for the Mars terraforming plan. Mars is just too small for that to work, especially over that kind of time scale. Seriously, you'd lose all the "atmosphere" you liberated unless you repeatedly crashed comets into it, and even then....

 

But I did want to keep reading, which why I debated between 3 and 2.5 stars.

We Found a Hat - Jon Klassen
We Found a Hat - Jon Klassen,Jon Klassen

The three books in the Hat trilogy are a single perfect entity: the same story (essentially) told from three different points of view. So simple, in tone and art, so nonjudgemental.  Klassen makes Hemingway and McCarthy look like poseurs.

Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat books are just so much fun to get into and this one shows the importance of not worrying about small things. As Pete says, "stuff comes and stuff goes." I love the illustrations and the rhyming in this book. This book would be great for a sequencing activity where students put sentences in order based off of what happened in the book.
