Robert C O'brien - Author

Although it's been thirty years since the publication of his last work, O'Brien's books contain the same ability to catch the imagination as their long-lasting contemporary, the higher profile Wrinkle in Time; a reader who loves A Wrinkle in Time is probably ripe for The Silver Crown. Z for Zachariah might suit a Gary Paulsen fan who is ready for something geared for older readers, or readers of futuristic fiction like Stephanie Tolan's Welcome to the Ark.
