    Cultures Collide, But The End Result Is Real

    Throsu Ka-Hohsh is just your average teen with future dreams of becoming an astronaut and present dreams of spending the days worrying about how to make those dreams a reality with her best friend Surreef Cha Surref, when that reality is shattered by the news of a human teenage girl, Joanna White, spending a year living with her and her family.

    So begins the tale of "The Year of The Human", a delightful YA sci-fi novel that presents a completely new spin on the age old story of when worlds/cultures collide, by placing the setting in the future and having the main characters human and feline.

    The trials and tribulations that both Throsu and Joanna match up to what any two teenagers from different cultures would go through while getting to know and eventually become very close friends.

    "The Year of The Human" is a steady paced page turner that is guaranteed to keep your interest to the very end. The writing is sharp and plotting never drags, and throughout it all, Barton never talks down to the reader, no matter what the age.

    I've only recently started reading YA and this book has definitely made it to my short list of what I would recommend to my eleven year old daughter. If you want something that is completely different from the usual YA fare that is out there today, this book is it. Refreshingly honest, it is a must for any book shelf.
