I found the first 60% of this book to be a review of material from [b:Below The Root|127122|Below the Root|Zilpha Keatley Snyder|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1171928608s/127122.jpg|6329]. Admittedly, it was from a different perspective, but it was too much for me. ( )

This is the sequel to Below the Root, although it does not begin where that left off. Instead, Teera's story is told from her perspective and that of the other Erdlings. The endpoint of the former book comes about halfway through this one, when the thread of narrative is picked back up from the perspectives of other characters. The players are gearing up to reveal the secret of the Erdlings and attempt to integrate them into Kinda society, but there are still those, such as D'ol Regle who will stop at nothing to prevent this.
With such fascinating world-building, well-developed characters, and a very suspenseful plot, Snyder once again proves she was doing Young Adult Fantasy before the genre was invented, and doing it very, very well. ( )

(For the whole trilogy): A utopian future on a planet with lowered gravity, psychic abilities, and naturally abundant food – what could be better? I read these books repeatedly as a kid, and still love them today. Of course, the utopia cracks under the pressure of the secrets it is keeping, and courageous children must save the day. The trilogy is a surprisingly sophisticated analysis of utopian ideals, for books aimed at children. The cultures that evolved on this planet are well-reasoned extensions of their histories, and the overall story is believable, given the premise. Plus, people get to fly and sleep in nests.

Sometimes I fantasize about rewriting the whole Green-Sky trilogy. It's a fabulous idea, the world is wondrously compelling; but the writing is far from Z. K. Snyder's best, and entirely too much of the story is told in flashback. It's particularly annoying how this book starts by retelling the plot of the end of the previous one from another character's point of view. ( )

This book stands alone if necessary, although it tells the same story as "Below the Root," but from the viewpoint of Teera - a small girl who lives in Erda, a society of caves that is , yes, below the root. ( )

First words
There had not always been hunger in Erda. Even Teera, who was only eight years old, could remember when food had been, if not plentiful, at least sufficient to keep the stomachs of Erdling children from crying out so continuously that they were unable to sleep.
