Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up -Citizens of the 23rd century spend most of their time with virtual-reality goggles on, exploring their digital "lairs." Telly has received a suicide note from her friend Kimmie66, whom she's only met in their lair, Elysium. However, Kimmie is still seen "netside": Is she really dead? Telly uncovers the truth, and also learns to "stop to smell the unvirtualated roses" once in a while. This is an imaginative, relevant science-fiction story that should interest fans of books such as M. T. Anderson's Feed (Candlewick, 2002). The author plays with words effectively to create a whole new, futuristic world: at one point Telly's friend Nekokat refers to a Patrick Swayze "flattie," which is a "non-holographic movie." The artwork and layouts are inventive and should appeal to manga fans. Characters are drawn with spiky hair and large eyes, and the drawings often spill out of the panels, which are drawn with jagged, uneven edges. The black-and-white drawings are occasionally a little murky and details can be hard to make out, but this may just add to the dark appeal of this edgy, sophisticated graphic novel.-Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

    Good

    The summary sounded interesting and that cover. This was good and the art was also good. Weird but still good.
