OVERALL RATING 9/10

Engaging story, exciting adventure, perfect sci-fi for kids!

I don't read a lot of sci-fi, but this book may have warmed me up to it! The world and story feels believable (at least to a non-sciency type like me 😅), and the plot is engaging enough to keep even an adult coming back for more. Many of the action-packed scenes feel unbelievable (a LOT of very close scrapes with death), but if you can lend a little imagination it becomes a fun adventure. I would definitely reccomend this book!
