- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1
Mira's family has lived in Amberland for five years, waiting to become citizens and gain access to Amber, a magical liquid that makes normal people extraordinary and prevents illness. While Mira wants only to be like everybody else, her classmate Daniel doesn't even try to fit in. When she discovers how sick his little brother is, she realizes that Amber should be saved for those who truly need it. Meanwhile, the precious substance begins to grow scarce, leading to public protests, with citizens demanding that immigrants return to their countries and stop using up the local supply. Mira's story, told through intimate first-person narration, flows easily. Young readers will enjoy watching her self-realization bloomâlike a lovely wildflowerâas she comes to learn who she is without Amber and realizes that she never needed it at all. The futuristic setting presents a cautionary element through strong parallels to our own reality. A strong middle-grade novel recommended for all libraries. Grades 3-6.
