S main emotional arc throughout the book really seems to be accepting that she might not really understand where other people are coming from or what struggles they might face but the author accomplishes this in a compelling way not by screaming KNOW YOUR PRIVILEGE on every page And Nadya elps Tam to understand that Les Nombrils - Tome 5 - Un couple d'enfer (French Edition) he might not knower as well as Tuntematon Kimi Räikkönen he thinks either andis difficult past doesn t give Handbook of Primary Care Procedures (Orthopaedic Surgery Essentials) him license to act like a jerk The back and forth between these two works so well it s realistic and not overwhelmingFinally I loved that these characters face conseuences They don t justave a grand old time facing down the pirates and lark off into the sunset afterwards And they don t just very nearly die but everything turns out ok The books ends on a DevOps with Kubernetes : Non-Programmer's Handbook hopeful but bittersweet note which is exactlyow I like my fiction even children s fiction Especially children s fictionOverall an exciting intriguing and often funny adventure that doesn t limit itself to light The Fiddler in the Subway hijinks I m looking forward to the next installment The strength of this book is its characters uickly sketched but with enough nuance toint at backstory Great research on ship anatomy and using a garden to power a balloon are just a few of the creative elements in the bookMy reservations come from the dialogue presentation of the protagonist and ending The dialogue is sparse but leaves a lot of uncertainty in the conversations Adding an air of mystery and tension that feels forced The protagonist Nadya is a classic orphan protagonist whose backstory is kept from Trumbull Park (Northeastern Library of Black Literature) her she can t remember It is eventually revealed but leaves an odd motive of frustration whener decisions pan out wrong end justifies means or she can t take full responsibilityThe ending is a solid cliffhanger It s off to a good start so I look forward to seeing ow the series
