By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Candor - Pam Bachorz When I hear the word dystopia, I always think first of the kind of society described in this book. To me, it's not the obviously broken world that fits the term, but the one that looks perfect, that looks utopian, until you delve below its surface. This is a genuinely creepy book, all the creepier because it seems so possible. However, I had a few issues with Oscar's character. Mostly, I didn't quite buy his transformation. [Feb. 2011]
