Review: 2018.512 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Izze needs to stop her body parts from flying across the galaxy, and it’d help a lot if she could get a job as a real professor. Severin needs to get his aging back on track. By the end, she's rescued Severin from the researchers, and she's discovered she can control the different pieces of her body at a distance, letting her be in more than one place at the same time.

Con: I couldn’t suspend disbelief for this one. The mix of magic and science almost never works for me, especially when so much of the science is just wrong.
