Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by AS King

Things I really liked:  The back and forth between the visions and the present time were timed perfectly.   Glory’s dad could have been one-dimensional but he comes together nicely by the end.

Things I didn’t like:  Aunt Amy was such an afterthought.  She needed a bigger role than just vanishing from Glory’s life.  Her excuse for this was lame.  I also thought the Peter character needed more emphasis.  

I think this is a book that will stay in my mind awhile.  The author has given the reader lots to think about.  (I felt this way about another AS King book, Reality Boy)
