umm...a title for this review

This book was great. It captivates you and you won't want to but it down. I don't think this should be age level 9-12, it seems to me to fit more under young adult.

Heartlight

T. A. Barron's Heartlight is a great science-fiction book. As you read this book, it is easy to sense that you are in the book with the characters. The book tells of a young girl who travels in outer space through her heartlight. Kate's mission is to find her grandfather in outer space in another galaxy and bring him home to safety. Heartlight is full of excitement and adventure as Kate searches for her lost grandfather who is trying to save the sun. The sun is running out of PCL (pure condensed light) and it is up to her grandfather to save the sun. I really enjoyed Heartlight, and I am not a person who likes science-fiction books. This book is not one of those completely unbelievable books where you know that nothing in the book could ever happen. T.A. Barron writes outstanding details and descriptions in the book, and one starts to believe that the sun just might really run on PCL. The characters live within you throughout the tosses and turns of the book. T.A. Barron makes it possible to ride on the wings of a Morpho nestra, a beautiful butterfly, soar through outer space into other galaxies, get stuck in a black hole, and live to tell the story.

The Best Everything

Heartlight is one of those rare books which absolutely captivated me. It is a moral tale woven from dreams. In our technological, death-denying culture, it is refreshing to read a story which goes beyond technology and does not deny death. Its battle between good and evil is very convincing. It was lovely to meet characters who pray. And the way it ends, well, like the Retriever, it is pure gold. Read it and find the heartlight within your own heart.

A Mystical Tale for Children

I am an Episcopal Priest and a Children's Librarian. Heartlight was one of those rare books which absolutely captivated me. It is a moral tale woven from dreams. In our technological, death-denying culture, it is refreshing to read a story which goes beyond technology and does not deny death. Its battle between good and evil is very convincing. If Heartlight owes a great deal to Madeleine L'Engle, Barron does L'Engle credit. It was lovely to meet characters who pray. And the way it ends, well, like the Retriever, it is pure gold. Read it and find the heartlight within your own heart.

One of the best books I've ever read.

I never thought I would like this book but a friend told me to read it. I loved it. I hardly believed I'd be near tears at the end. Science Fiction lovers will love this book. It has many technical and unusual terms. It's and interesting save the world type book that you will never be able to put down.
