Review by Ina Young.
I loved reading this book. Really couldn't put it down. Good story, beautifully told. And short, so easy to finish quickly. Naturally it helped that I am somewhat of that generation although I never heard of polio as a young child (overprotected). I recommend Nemesis to everyone.
