Reviewed in the United States on April 1, 2017
SENSUALITY RATING: NO profanity; NO Euphemistic "code words; NO sexual encounters
GENRE: Science Fiction; YA; Action fiction; Written in 1st tense.
CENTRAL MALE CHARACTER: SCOUT – Innocent; Cool and Confident under pressure;
SUPPORTING FEMALE CHARACTER: EMMA – 17 year old Risk- taker; a bit of a Worry wart.
SYNOPSIS: She sat by his bed watching him in a coma, dying and in the final stages of his cancer. A loud sound was heard outside but only his dog went to investigate. Everything changed when he opened his eyes and asked for a drink of water.
WHAT I LIKED: Scout had such a great personality and a child-like manner; so innocent and kind. Roy and Beverly cracked me up.
WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: Eric was extremely intelligent. I wish that his character had been much more a part of the plot.
OVERALL RATING: (5) stars because this is a fantastic YA book that even older adults, such as myself, will greatly enjoy (you really will). It started out just a tad slow (you might disagree) but the author totally went crescendo on me. Highly worth the read.
