It's not bad, but I honestly don't get it. It's going entirely too fast and no answers what so ever. I don't understand how all the oceans could have just dried up in under 5 years or how the earth apparently stopped rotating so there isn't night, just day all the time, but you can still see the moon. Not to mention Patagonia itself and the kids who live there. Where did it all come from? Why them? How does it all work, and where exactly is it? I was left floundering the whole time. There was nothing that made it stick enough for me to be able to believe this world that Volley has created.If this was longer and had some explanations in terms of the world-building, it would be 100x better.
