I don't know anything about the book itself except that it's coming out,
but if you're interested in finding out more about the author, she has a
blog I occasionally read at  I think it's
an interesting site.  Basically, she's reading juvenile science fiction
(specifically science fiction, not fantasy) novels and writing reports on
them.  Since I've never even heard of most of the books she's writing
about, I can't speak to the extent to which her reports fit my tastes, but
I definitely like her writing style.
