Children’s Book Committee – September Pick
In a dystopian future, bioengineered Locke has been saved by the resistance. Now he’s on a perilous mission to help them. Will he succeed?
Our young reviewer says:
The plot, setting, and characters combine perfectly to create a thrilling sense of nervousness and excitement. The captivating plot includes just the right number of mystery, emotional, and nail-biting action scenes. Also, the numerous plot twists ensure that the reader cannot presume or predict anything. The setting is beautifully painted. Pearson describes the futuristic buildings and technologies in such clear and logical detail that each scene is easily imagined, but she does not overburden the story with so many descriptions that the reader’s imagination is unnecessary.
