Remmy’s latest book Changes is science fiction at its finest. It starts with fiction when it describes the friendship and bonds of a group of boys growing up in the Southwest. Unknown to them, the world is about to come crumpling down around them and their care and love for each other will be tested to the ultimate limit.
While the boys are living their lives as if nothing wrong will occur, in Russia it is a different story. A mysterious plague is starting to kill people and scientists are frantically trying to find the cause and a cure. I will refrain from saying anything else because I don’t want to give out any spoilers. The characteristics of each of the boys are well-defined and true to boys of their ages. The dialogue is well-paced and believable.
What I would call the final “section” of this book deals with changing a dystopian world into a utopian one. It is a long struggle but is it successful? Remmy’s outlook on politics is hopeful despite our present situation. He presents his ideas without any harsh judgment, but as a warning: if we want our world to survive for our children and grandchildren, then we must be willing to listen to any ideas, no matter how young the source is.
Remmy’s fans will definitely find this book just as enjoyable as his other ones. I highly recommend that you get your copy now. I give it a big thumbs up and five gold stars!
