read this one in one night and a few rushed minutes in the morning, because i just couldn’t wait to find out what happens to mokie. i’m still puzzled and worrying about the ending – did she die? didn’t she? – which make me think there’s something big there i Didn’t Get, you know? but i liked it a lot – it rang true and had so much heart in describing the relationships between mokie and her three ‘mote beam’ friends.
plus, it affected, i’m sure of it, some of the sweeter dreams i’ve had in a long time, leaving me trying for long long minutes that morning when i awake to get back to sleep, back to the dreams. that’s gotta be a sign of something good.
