  • Good balance of action/non-action plot points
  • Themes were done well
  • Some comic relief
  • Well-written/well-edited
  • Technology was well introduced; not overwhelming

  • Could use a better balance of female characters

 


My Rating5 stars


Recommendation

I highly recommend this exciting read to children in upper elementary and middle school. Also, those older who are young at heart and for those who enjoy reading children’s chapter books.
