Putting Up Roots, by Charles Sheffield

Second paragraph of third chapter:

He was used to carryout meals, or eating on the run in fast-food places, because his mother was always rushing off somewhere or too busy rehearsing or studying parts to do any cooking. Uncle Ryan said that Aunt Stacy was a great cook, but it was obvious that he was totally bowled over by his new wife. He probably thought that everything she did was great, no matter how bad it was. In any case, it didn’t seem possible that the reality could live up to the aromas.

This is a YA book taken from the template of Heinlein’s Tunnel In the Skyget it here.

This was both my most popular unread book acquired in 2010, and the shortest unread book acquired that year. Next on both lists is 52 Ways of Looking at a Poem: A Poem for Every Week of the Year, by Ruth Padel.

  1. There was a mention of the new draft Soviet constitution and the increase from seven to eleven republics in the Observer on June 7th 1936 (page 27). The Guardian had an article mentioning eleven federal republics without naming them on June 13th 1936 (page 16).
