paragraph divider 18***Julie, #NerdGirlJulie’s Review***

Eena by Alison Clarke is a debut foray into storytelling for the young adult audience. This science fiction short story is likely to light up the imaginations of many teen readers.

I appreciated the literary references, and the very vivid descriptions created clear pictures in my mind while I read. There is a lot going on in the short story, and I have to admit that at times I found it hard to follow. Short stories can be difficult to write given the limitations on character and plot development, and a few segues would have been helpful in piecing together all the details that are presented in the book. This short could easily be developed into a rich full-length novel.

Although I don’t normally choose to read post-apocalyptic science fiction, the wild ride through this short story is sure to entice young adult readers.
