The Chronologist (EBook, 2022, Tom Doherty Associates) No rating

A boy, desperate to escape the drudgery of life in his small town, gets caught …

Discovering what happens when you unravel time as seen by mechanical clocks.

3 stars

An interesting story of a boy in a town whose routines are slightly askew (it's always summer, for instance) because the clocks that make time past are not measuring the passage of time correctly. Until a time-keeper comes to mend the clocks, and mend time.

But the boy's desire for a change in his daily routine makes him steal an item from the time-keeper, which he uses to make all time askew to get the time-keeper to return, so he may escape with him. But time has a plan of its own for the boy, which leads to a possibly inevitable conclusion about the boy and the time-keeper.

Review of 'Catfishing on CatNet' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

A book I read down in one day and immediately started the sequel. It is fun, has a diverse cast and a light-hearted tone but is also meaningful. It touches darker issues in a respectful way and has a fast developing plot. But what struck me most when I read this "ten minute in the future" young adult novel is how it describes friendships online and offline. I never before have read a book that described my own way of treating internet spaces and friendships and what they mean to me so accurately.

Catfishing on CatNet (2021, Tor Teen) 4 stars

Because her mom is always on the move, Steph hasn't lived anyplace longer than six …

A few chapters in I just couldn't stop. Sharing an overall positive view of technology with books like Charlie Jane Anders' All the Birds in the Sky or Becky Chambers' Wayfarers Series, this novel doesn't shy away from some dark places and trusts its teenage audience to grasp the complexity of an extremely online society that is super connected but als super trackable.
