Reread this during the night before the big cross country move, when it managed to escape being boxed until the last moment by falling behind the bookcase.

A short sci-fi adventure story, I remember the fictional board game capturing my imagination as an early reader, in second or third grade, and found it quite surprising on adult reading to discover the protagonist was a teenager. ( )

This was a re-read for me. I enjoyed this book quite a bit, and it has a lot to think through. It is Y.A. book with some fairly sophisticated dialogue and development.

This book is like putting together a puzzle, and I think that is the funnest way to read - to look for the clues that are given and attempt to solve what is going on.

I am looking forward to reading the sequel at some point. ( )

One of my children has asked me to read all of William Sleator's books. So far they are great. Interstellar Pig is innovative and entertaining story-telling, and it reminds me of what books for young people could be like, before "YA" became a category.

I have a feeling that all my ratings of Sleator's books are going to be 5 stars, both because my kids love them, and because I'm rating them in relation to other middle-school popular reads being published recently, such as the execrable books of the GONE series, which in comparison make William Sleator books sound like William Shakespeare.

Good sci-fi adventure for kids and adults too. ( )

One of the things I enjoy about this challenge is that I am able to not only reread many of my favorites (which I most likely would never have thought to do), but to read many new books I might otherwise never have read either.

Barney and his parents are renting a summer house on the New England coast. Barney's room is the one which a Sea Captain's brother had been imprisoned after surviving being keelhauled for murdering a man rescued from adrift upon the ship. Not only does the room have the best view of the ocean, but there are odd scratches on the windowsill....

Soon after Barney & his parents move into the summer house, a trio of odd people (1 woman & 2 men) move into the house above them. The trio ask many questions and are anxious to explore their neighbors house.....in fact they seem intent on searching the house top to bottom looking for something specific.

The neighbors are also playing a board game called "Interstellar Pig"....a game which they have invited Barney to play, one which may or may not have deadly stakes. ( )

This book is dedicated to my parents, Esther and Bill Sleator. Though a doctor and a scientist, with similar expectations for me, they bore my decision to make a living as a writer with extraordinary fortitude--and have even, at times, encouraged me.

I'm telling you, there's more history to this house than any other place on Indian Neck, and that's the truth.
