 The SF Site Featured Review: Kaspian Lost
Richard Grant is the author of at least 7 novels, including In the Land of Winter and Rumors of Spring, a personal favourite.
Grant couples the politics of two otherwise unlikely connected subjects -- school reform and UFO abductions -- and grafts them onto a highly amusing coming-of-age fable (as if growing up isn't weird enough without having to endure crackpot politicos and alien visitations).
Kaspian is a smart 15-year-old misfit grasping with such questions as the meaning of the universe and his role in it, not to mention the meaning of sex and when will he get to experience it.
