Review:

Winner of the Pheonix Award, Children's Literature Association Recipient of a Certificate of Honour from the International Board of Books for Young People 'It has been a delight to rediscover this science fiction fantasy love story. Monica Hughes skilfully tackles issues of environment, human perception and failings and prejudice entwined in a captivating and heartwarming story.' -- Mary Hoffman, Armadillo, Autumn 2003. 'Skillfully crafted science fiction stands the test of time and Hughes' The Keeper of the Isis Light features universal, enduring themes and memorable characters. Highly Recommended.' -- CM: Canadian Review of Teacher's Materials Magazine 'The Keeper of the Isis Light is a moving and humane study of young love and prejudice. Hughes is not afraid to tackle tough moral and emotional subjects, yet she never forgets to tell an entertaining and well extrapolated science fictional story that can appeal to all readers. She recognizes the universality of human emotions and deals with them in a clear-hearted as well as clear-headed fashion. She deserves the accolades she has won elsewhere and should finally receive them in her home country.' -- Doug Barbour, Toronto Star 'It is worth reading this book even if just for the twist in the middle. I rate this book 9/10.' -- Matt Longmuir, age 13, Education Otherwise
