Gemma Malley has written another thought provoking novel set a few years into the future. A number of important issues are covered throughout this deceptively small book including racism, anti-immigration, human suffering, destiny vs free will and the failure of humankind to learn from the past. I loved the concept of the returners, it was an original idea, and the only reason I gave this book 3 stars instead of 4, is because I felt that the returners could have been developed further giving the novel more depth. However, still a great read. ( )

well since we can't do 2 1/2 stars with and "i thought it was ok" rating, i did 3 stars cuz i didn't dislike it but i didn't like like it. neat concept. slow start for me and the ending was kinda wanting. ( )
