A very charming light and funny little book YA sci fi real YA sci fi not romance disguised as sci fi is still a rare thing to find and I very much enjoyed this story about time travel aliens a DNA mystery and an unlikely friendship Joss is spunky and rebellious without being annoying Mavkel a very fascinating and endearing character I loved how their friendship developed how the Chorians communicated and how their society worked The overall tone of the book was light but not without meaning; funny but not trying too hard and the author didn't feel the need to dump too much information about the world on the reader I very much like the feeling of getting to know the setting by myself and not being told what it's supposed to be likeTowards the end though I felt like some things were a little rushed I would have wished for some depth a lot if conflicts were hinted at but not picked up again and in the end I was left with a lot of open uestions – not about the plot but about the background of the story in general I would have loved to learn about the Chorians about the scientific aspect behind time travel how does it actually work and about Joss's family Nevertheless recommended if you are into lighter sci fi with a futuristic setting and would like to read a book without a focus on romance for once I would have wished to be just a little invested emotionally but in comparison to Froi of the Exiles the book didn't really stand a chance in that department #11 Aussie YA Challenge 2011

I’m always on the lookout for a fun space related story Singing the Dogstar Blues isn’t set in space but there is a very futuristic feel to it and ALIENS so it definitely hit my sweet spot If you are wondering if this book reads at all like Goodman’s other book Eon the answer at least for me is absolutely not I enjoyed Eon but the pacing was off and I wasn’t especially attached to any of the characters That’s not the case here Joss Aaronson attends a prestigious time jumping school and holds one of 12 coveted spots in the program for her year She is a comp which basically means that her mother used a donor to have her and comps are looked down on as genetically manipulated because people can use up to even 5 or 6 donors to create the child of their choice She is snarky sassy and unlike Eona it doesn’t take her eras to figure out what is going on around her Thank goodness for thatOverall the book has a bit of a campy and adventurous feel The plot primarily revolves around Joss and her new school partner Mavkel the first alien to be admitted As expected there are enemies and allies in the school administration and amongst the students but Joss and Mavkel hold this entire story on their backs and they succeed in doing so I couldn’t picture what Mavkel actually looked like but it didn’t hinder the character development His personality came through even with a language barrier and extensive cultural differences He and Joss bond over music and that is where the title of the book comes from There are hints that this was Goodman’s first novel—the writing definitely favors utility rather than description for instance Since this is what I prefer in my sci fi I was than happy with the style And Ms Goodman actually surprised me with a plot twist near the end don’t click it unless you want it to be ruined view spoiler I seriously laughed out loud when we found out that Mavkel’s sneeze into the Petri dish resulted in Joss’s connection with the alien race hide spoiler
