Gr 7 Up—When the aliens came they were noninteractive—they simply hung in the sky like jellyfish. And when they suddenly left, some newborn girls were "touched," born with supernatural powers. To hide his touched daughters, Magnus Roma created a traveling circus. Penn is the fifth daughter, a Celestine who can call down the stars. When trouble comes looking for her family, Penn has a choice. Should she use the power she has always tried to hide? Suzanne Elise Freeman brings a great host of voices to her narration, captivating listeners while transfixing them in Penn's world. Hatton's writing shines, though the complex, action-filled plot may be confusing at first for some listeners.
VERDICT Steampunk fans who enjoy a little magic mixed in will enjoy. ["Steampunk and fantasy fans will find much to love in this unique, action-packed debut": SLJ 11/15 review of the Amazon Skyscape book.]
