Praise for INTERWORLD:
"A fast-paced compulsively readable tale" ALA Booklist
"A mind-stretching ride" VOYA (starred review)
Gr 7-10-Sixteen-year-old Joey Harker and his band of freedom fighters attempt to save the Altiverse from those who fight to control its science-magic balance. But things get complicated when Acacia, a mysterious and beautiful stranger, follows Joey back into the InterWorld Base. Joey is surprised to learn that she knows a lot-maybe too much-about InterWorld. With war looming, Joey is not sure whether he and his team should trust her. The Silver Dream will be challenging for teens who have not read InterWorld (HarperCollins, 2007). It includes many technological terms, places, and equipment without offering much explanation as to what they are. A slew of characters whose names begin with the letter J is thrown at readers all at once, making it difficult to remember who's who. While The Silver Dream will not appeal to a huge audience, it will find a following among readers who enjoyed the first book, Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Harmony, 1980), and Star Trek.-Leigh Collazo, Ed Willkie Middle School, Fort Worth, TX (c) Copyright 2013.
