Beta Reading to My Kids, Update 1

So, I've now read them the first three chapters, and here are my thoughts:

  • Turns out The Orbitals is not actually a YA novel. It's a general audiences(?) novel with a young-adult protagonist.
  • I love jargon way more than I love explaining jargon.
  • I still like this story.
It's hard not to take it personally when your three-year-old girl falls asleep to your book, but to be fair, she fell asleep to Harry Potter too. Also very difficult to keep the five-year-old boy from prying into what happens next because the "I haven't read it yet" excuse is completely gone.
