I received this book, the first of the three newly published Eleven & Amy adventures, on Friday, and finished it by Saturday afternoon. While the novels in general are mainly aimed at a YA audience, they are usually interesting enough to hold my attention and keep me turning the pages. Pretty much all of the new series Who novels are head and shoulders above the old Target novelizations, although not as complex as the series of novels published between the end of the old series and the 2005 reboot.
