Things I Liked:
Because I studied astronomy, books like this have a special appeal for me. Especially when the astronomy details are well done (which they are). The characters are interesting and I definitely began to care about what happened to them and how they would deal with the difficult changes that are happening. I think, however, the best part was the description of the eclipse. I can still remember some details of an eclipse I saw in kindergarten. It is definitely a memorable experience and Mass writes about it in gorgeous detail.
Things I Didn't Like:
The story seemed just a touch sappy for me. I liked how things didn't work out exactly as the characters would have liked, but it seems like something parents will want to give kids, but kids won't really pick up on their own. Unless they really like astronomy. :)
