    As the father of a young daughter, it's great to see books like this. It is very empowering to that demographic, but also anyone in the age range. Ashley is relatable to kids of all ages, and adults can see a lot of themselves in her when they were younger. Her best friend Luke, is also a great role model for boys who don't follow the status quo and follow their own path. That's what the story of Primer is all about; embracing what makes you different and following your own path. It's a message everyone can relate to. Read Full Review
