A group of little children are on the planet Venus trying to have happy lives there because most of the time it rains. During such seldom times, the sun becomes visible to these children which is a very exclusive thing for everyone there. A nine year old girl named Margot is the only one who remembers what the sun looks like because she left Earth five years before her arrival to Venus so she explains her interactive experience with it but the other children do not believe her. With the sun coming back after all these years, such as once in a blue moon, will she ever see the sun again like she had while being on planet Earth?
The book was kind of...odd I would say. I mean I get the whole idea of it but sometimes I start to wonder why an author would make a setting on a random planet for a group of little children. Odd stories are really good in my opinion because at least readers would get to see the different tones and connotations in books rather than the same old basic ones over and over. I thought the cover of this book looks very cool, especially since this is a sci-fi novel. It’s aesthetically pleasing. And I also like how the author used children in this rather than a bunch of teenagers or very old adults because having a plot like that would probably bore the reader. When I first started reading this book, it was when I was in sixth grade so I would recommend 5th or 6th graders to read this. This is a story that many people should easily understand and they should be able to get all the basic lines and key details of this book even though this can sound like teen fiction or young adult fiction. The earlier you start reading sci-fi the better.
