A new student review of Robi's Flying Saucer Drive-In (Series, 1st book) by Kelly Anne Winsa

thudson36 posted a new student review of Robi's Flying Saucer Drive-In (Series, 1st book) by Kelly Anne Winsa. See the full review.

Overall, I enjoyed reading this novel. Kelly Anne Winsa did a great job describing the characters, food, and the setting, such as the carnival and drive-in. The descriptions really pulled the audience in and made it feel real. I also liked how the author incorporated flashbacks in between stories from the present. These flashbacks to Saffron’s past summer developed her character even more and gave the reader additional background information to her life. The mystery of finding out who Clair really was held my interest while reading.

Although I did enjoy reading this novel, there were a couple aspects that caused a stumbling block for me. The sentences were short and choppy, which sometimes interrupted the flow. The story also jumped from topic to topic frequently, which caused a little confusion and made it hard to focus on what was happening. In conclusion, I would recommend this novel to anyone looking for a coming of age story with a science fiction twist.
