Zazu


If it's got spaceships, dragons, wormhole generators, wands, or any kind of flying—I'm on it! I love sci-fi and fantasy (for any age), but I'll read anything, particularly the satirical, unconventional, bold, thought-provoking, historically accurate, geek-related, or tech-oriented.

For fans of Raina Telgemeier!

This is an HONEST portrayal of what makes being a kid so hard--the ups and downs of friendship and "fitting in".

These characters and story will be relatable to everyone--whether you've ever felt like the outcast or the popular kid or anywhere in between.

Title: Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

Comments:
Admission - I'm not really a person in a hurry. But I just can't seem to ever get myself to read those longer nonfiction books, even if I'm SO interested in the topic!

Neil deGrasse Tyson here blends his hard facts with an engaging and often humorous narrative style - perfect! An information-packed book I can actually enjoy - and get through!

Highly recommended for every kind of inquisitive mind!
