I finished "First Light" last night. It was dense and didn't really get going until page 150, but it was really imaginative and I plan on recommending it to all my readers who love Gregor the Overlander.
This morning I began "Liar and Spy", which is a Mark Twain Award Nominee for next year. This book already feels a bit like "When You Reach Me", because of the setting and also the tone.
If I win the lottery, I'd have Stead be my next visiting author. I love her.
