Would you nominate this book for Teens' Top Ten?

What did you like or not like about the cover? Did the cover reflect the contents?
The cover was OK and did refect the contents. One child in a burning city is a little overdone.

Describe the most compelling aspect of the book.
Flying people.

Were you disappointed with the book for any reason? If so, what was disappointing?
Yes, The authors only apparent reason for writing this book was to bash christianity, elders, and obediance.

How would you rate the book?

This book is about a group of people that have progressed in evolution peing taken over by another group of people who have progressed in technology and the fight to take back their land. Although this sounds great and the book is well written, I felt like the entire book was writen just to get a few points accros in a way that the author could say "It's just a story" to any argument brought against his paper. I think this should have been a persuasive essay rather than a fiction book.
