The other eight Admins left their stations and gathered around the conference table, the entire surface of which was a touchscreen with interactive 3D projections.
Trish pointed at Ruby's frontal lobe. It was undivided!
She enlarged a gene strand on Ruby's DNA map, and then activated the same gene strand on her parents' maps.
“This family is a nightmare,” she moaned.

Full of imagination
Just finished Saardu and was not disapointed. It is a quick read but is full of colors, creatures, and delight. Carma's world is full of imagination and it was interesting how she uses that very idea in her story. I felt there was a bit too much explaining of things and wished there was a bit more story than the "whys". Over all a great childrens read especially for those enjoying the sci-fi and fantasy genres. Dont ever give up your dreams.

A Wonderful New Myth
The hallmark of a wonderful myth is that it has the power to transform. Carma Dillon's story of Saardu is accessible to both the imagination of children and adults. Children will identify with Ruby's quest to make sense of her world, and adults will be able to ponder interesting questions regarding the nature of a multi-dimensional reality. It will, indeed, transform the way all its readers see their world. The ability to make this sort of speculative story entertaining and enjoyable is a real tribute to Ms. Dillon's unique talent.
