Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (3):

Kids will certainly be caught up in this adventure as two likable characters use their big brains to time-travel and stop a mutiny -- and hopefully save the world they're living in.

Author James Dashner covers a lot of ground here, explaining the Infinity Ring, the SQ, and getting Dak and Sera on their way to save Columbus. Some readers may get a bit lost trying to track exactly what's happening with time and what the breaks are all about; it's pretty sophisticated stuff. (One way the Hystorians know that time is broken is that some characters like Sera experience "Remnants," ghost-like memories that feel very real and leave them upset.) Even so, the author throws in enough humor, adventure, and inventive details -- like devices that let you speak and understand any language! -- to keep even reluctant readers engaged.

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.
