Okay, so this is an awesome read, and here are a few reasons why. First, problems are quickly resolved, but the mindset of those involved is viscerally captured. Second, the scene breaks are expertly captured, with a change in the flow of words that nicely matches any change in speaker. Third, the crew has a female majority, always a plus. Fourth, the praise paragraph... it made me tear up.
"They wouldn't have accepted you if you didn't have what it takes. I bet the other people look at you the same way you look at them and have the same [concerns] you have. You are right where you belong, son."
I mean, that's about the best mothering as can be done! Read this book. It's accurate, honest and a darn good read.
