Inside Out - Maria V. Snyder The author’s debut novel, Poison Study, is one of my all-time favorites, so I was really excited to read this book, her YA and sci-fi debut (though the Study series has been repackaged as YA, weirdly, to my way of thinking). The science fiction world she’s created is interesting, but the writing was surprisingly shoddy overall. I was intrigued enough that I’ll be picking up the sequel, but not impressed enough to recommend it to all my friends.(Review cross-posted to my blog, http://www.elenagleason.com)
