This is a really well written tale and the author has created a bunch of realistic characters in the Marriss family. It's not often that you see Dystopian themes addressed in literature for fourth graders, and the author has done a good job here of taking a difficult situation and sort of toning it down for the 10 year old palate, all the while still keeping an air of authenticity. This is a compelling read, and young kids will be cheering for Dewey to succeed in his efforts while at the same time thinking about what they would do in his situations. You feel heartbroken because you know how much they miss their parents and wonder at their ability to keep going in the face of so much uncertainty. Their desire throughout to "quit being the parents" lends realism to these teenagers sometimes superhuman efforts at being adults.
