REVIEWS

Praise for Bubble World

“Snow nestles a powerful message about bravery, self-confidence, and integrity in the midst of fluffy, irreverent talk of fashion and teen idols and a virtual world at the crossroads of The Matrix and Barbie’s Dreamhouse.” —Booklist

 

“Readers who enjoyed Libba Bray’s Beauty Queens will relish Snow’s sarcastic wit, and fans of Neal Shusterman’s Unwind Dystology series will recognize an alternate world in which parents have exclusive rights over the lives of their children. Teens will enjoy following Freesia in this humorous sci-fi novel.” —School Library Journal
