Reviewed by Lynn Crow for TeensReadToo.com

Melinda doesn't want to go to Mars. Why leave Earth when everything humans are meant to enjoy is there? But when her father, whom she's only seen sporadically over the last ten years, asks her to join him on a business trip to one of the Mars colonies after she graduates from high school, she can't bring herself to refuse him. Little does she know her months on Mars will change the way she thinks about life, love, and humanity.

With JOURNEY BETWEEN WORLDS, Sylvia Louise Engdahl has written a science-fiction story that will appeal to a variety of teens. Melinda faces many of the same problems today's young adults do, only in an otherworldly location. The first person narrative puts readers right inside Melinda's head and allows them to see through her eyes. Her struggle to overcome her fear of change and to examine her feelings and beliefs honestly should resonate with anyone uncertain of exactly who they are and want to be.

The story, of course, is not only about Melinda, but also Mars. The descriptions of Mars and its colonies are fascinating in their detail and realism, providing an exciting setting for Melinda's personal conflicts. The colonists, with their pride and passion, will make readers wonder if they, too, would have the pioneer spirit.

I would recommend JOURNEY BETWEEN WORLDS to any teen looking for a thought-provoking read. Unlike many science-fiction novels, this is not a story of action and technology, but rather of wonder. I'll admit, at times I wished there was more excitement, but overall it was a satisfying read. Both Melinda's problems and the issues raised by the colonization of another planet will give readers much to ponder long after they've finished reading. ( )

"The book feels as fresh and interesting as any near-future novel I have read. . . . A very accessible story for readers who are interested in space colonization as well as readers who enjoy stories about personal growth and relationships."

"Journey Between Worlds is an exploration novel of self and place. Melinda starts out thinking she understands the universe and her place within it. But new concepts, locations, and people have a way of kicking over our conceptual sand castles."

"Readers are instantly drawn to Melinda, who is portrayed realistically ... we can all sympathize with her. If you’ve been trying to get your daughters to read [science fiction] to no avail, try this for a little lighter reading. You may be surprised how much they like it."

"An exciting space fiction novel. Young adults will find not only adventure here in good measure but a satisfying love story as well."
adicionado por SylviaE | editarCatholic Library World (Apr 1, 1971)
"Deftly blending scientific possibility, suspense, and youthful emotion in the first-person narrative, the author has projected a plausible picture of the post-twentieth-century world--a world where pioneers on Mars and envisioned as a continuation of the endless chain of settlers who have been moving to new frontiers even since the human race began."
