Star Child: The Cosmic Birth
by Paul G. Day
This author has written an imaginative and creative story that takes the reader above and beyond the dimensions of our world and into another universe. A sci-fi book for YA that will keep them mesmerized with the turn of each page. Paul Day takes the reader on an unforgettable adventure into the future. He has great insight and creates a fantastic premise of what the future of our world could be. It is both frightening and mesmerizing to read this incredible story.

This is a fascinating read and was enjoyed by this adult. Who says you have to be a kid to enjoy YA genre.

There will be more parts to this story and I look forward to reading them all. A wonderful addition to YA summer reading or any time.
