    This is one smartly written play for young audiences. I love the whole lot of science with sprinkles of interstellar magic and sic fi combination. It made me want to perch myself in Strawberry, KS and watch the Perseids meteor shower. The relationship between Annie and her father - the complications, the silliness and then the poignancy - beautiful captured the delicate nature of a challenging relationship. All of the characters are rich and all a wee bit touched with magic and sweet madness. Would love to see this produced (Children's Theatre, Mpls, please?).

    Watching a loved one's mind slip is a terrifying and isolating thing. "Annie Jump and the Library of Heaven" lets you know you're not alone.

    I've been lucky enough to hear this play read twice. It is as moving as it is intelligent, compassionate as it is witty. This is a fun, sweet, smart, poignant, warm piece of science fiction about being gifted, having to figure out what to do with those gifts, and having to grow up. Whether or not we're alone in the universe, you will feel less alone when you discover this play.

    I directed a workshop of this play in June 2017 and fell deeply, deeply in love with it. Each scene has heart and humor, and can appeal to both Middle School/High School audiences as well as adults. The characters are memorable, strong, and intelligent and the play is imbued with a great sense of wonder for the world around us. Highly recommend!

    A play that combines science and romance with humor and an expansive vision of the universe. My cup of tea. Reina combines a rare voice with a facility for language that I have NEVER found a match for in any living playwright.

    So fun! Got to see a great reading at the Orlando Shakes Festival and had a grand time. Funny, girl power, science play with that fabulous Reina twist. It's not just for kids!
