    I was a Beta-reader for this book. I was supposed to be writing notes and comments in the margins but the book sucked me in so quickly and the pace was so fluid I was suddenly there at the end satisfied - with the edit pen still uncapped. Mr. Due's writing reminds me of a series of paintings where the artist uses the brightest colors and contrast available - just as those paintings please the eye his style and word choice please the reader. What a delight that his writing technique is complement

    I was a Beta-reader for this book. I was supposed to be writing notes and comments in the margins but the book sucked me in so quickly and the pace was so fluid I was suddenly there at the end satisfied - with the edit pen still uncapped. Mr. Due's writing reminds me of a series of paintings where the artist uses the brightest colors and contrast available - just as those paintings please the eye his style and word choice please the reader. What a delight that his writing technique is complemented nicely by a truly unique, quirky, intelligent, and fun plot that left me at the end of the book wanting to learn more. This is definitely a book that will entertain the age group he has targeted and I suspect older readers as well. If you buy this book you'd do yourself a favor by blocking out some time to read it as you won't want to put it down until you are closing the cover with a smile.

    Willamina Snap is an eleven year old girl who lived in Cambridge Massachusetts. One day, her and her family got taken to Grandeur, a city in a bubble that’s full of crazy things like “brewed” animal human hybrids, and sentient “clockwerks” or robots. In Grandeur, there are three main types of people: Idiots, people with an IQ lower than 160, Genesises, people with an IQ at or above 160, and Idiot Geniuses. These are special because Idiot Geniuses were the reason for creating Grandeur in the firs

    Willamina Snap is an eleven year old girl who lived in Cambridge Massachusetts. One day, her and her family got taken to Grandeur, a city in a bubble that’s full of crazy things like “brewed” animal human hybrids, and sentient “clockwerks” or robots. In Grandeur, there are three main types of people: Idiots, people with an IQ lower than 160, Genesises, people with an IQ at or above 160, and Idiot Geniuses. These are special because Idiot Geniuses were the reason for creating Grandeur in the first place. They are Geniuses who invent dangerous things, without realizing that they’re dangerous. Willa’s mom happens to be an Idiot Genius, which is why her and her family are taken to Grandeur. While there, she meets new friends and possible enemies at her new school and goes on a crazy adventure to “save her timeline.” I would recommend this book to anyone who loves science fiction, or science/inventions in general! This book hooked me from the first page and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series when it comes out!
