I have a young nephew who doesn’t like to read. In fact, he runs away from me when I say the word ‘book.’ The other day I had the Netgalley site open when he peered over and saw this book.

So, I did and I am very thankful that I can tell him that it was good.

Incidentally and unrelated to the book, per NASA’s web site, Triton is the “only large moon in our solar system that orbits in the opposite direction of its planet’s rotation.”
