The Icarus Project starts with such wit, leaping, springing, from one topic to the next while still staying on base, not completely moving to a different subject. Adding detail here, humor there, hope over there, there isn't a dull part. And she describes all the colors so PERFECTLY! I love how Maya seems special, but not abnormal, like, you know, she's not going to bonk her head on the ceiling when she learns to fly 1 hour later. She has good character grounding. ''The lights in the auditorium flickered, and a wave of hushed silence spread over the crowd. Blackness engulfed us as we looked up. Black was the absence of color. It was the freezing color of out space. And of closed eyes. Where colors went to die." - The Icarus Project, page 22
All in all, you will swoop through pages filled with beauty. Great for fantasy-fiction and mystery lovers. Oh, and Pluto fans.
