This is a compelling young adult fiction novel written by a new author. It is a love story mixed with science fiction, humor and even classic literature. I am always interested in how people can explain time-travel and their ideas of what time really is. I enjoyed the connection that Dante (the mysterious and handsome foreign-exchange student from Italy) had with Leonardo da Vinci. I laughed at Abby (the intelligent and creative high school senior) as she watched her little sister play her homemade A&B Clue (Austen and Bronte). The classic writings from Dante, Shakespeare, Virgil and poet W. H. Auden are woven throughout the story, creating connections with the past to the present. The mysteries of the book are not revealed early in the story, creating a can-not-put-it-down read.

The complete Calvin & Hobbes! Unlike the paperback editions that cherry picked and passed over some great panels, this three volume set covers all of Bill Waterston's classic comic strip. I have to give major kudos to the printer for the highest resolution printing I've yet to see from any collection like this. The B&W panels are crisp and clear and the Sunday panels have definition and colour that was lost in the newspapers and in the paperback editions. All are in heavy hardbound, sewn books, which in turn are in a heavy clothbound slipcase. If you are a C&H fan, don't pass this one up!
