Due to the urgencies of the publishing schedule, this book, although following Not In Our Stars into print, takes place before that book in internal storyline time-sequence. Each book stands perfectly well on its own, however; neither is, strictly speaking, a sequel to the other. Jefferson P. Swycaffer, San Diego, 1985.
