Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (4 ):

Like its predecessors, Freefall is a grim, violent story. Hope is often lost, characters are quick to betray each other (either purposely or through clueless selfishness), and no one is 100 percent likable. That said, it's also an engrossing, exciting adventure story, and readers who've made it this far will definitely want to find out what happens to Will, Chester, Elliott, the Rebeccas, and even Dr. Burrows.

Also like its predecessors, Freefall suffers somewhat from lax editing; the story could be tighter, and some of the plot turns are a bit hard to believe -- even for a fantasy novel. But for kids who think that more is more when it comes to books, the 600+ pages won't be a turn-off, and the unexpected twists the book takes near the end will certainly build anticipation for the next installment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
