Well what a different and refreshing story line. This is a Young adult novel and I can see why it would appeal. The storyline reminds me of Jumanji 2. But the missions andgoale are different.
The book has several chapters. Gwen or Teddy as she sometimes known as. Tells the story from her point of view. Other times it is her Dad. The book is easy to read and the author has a knack for writing descriptions.
Winter Lawrence brought the book to life for me. Although I am hanging in suspense as at the end I felt like I was in a Marvel film. You know where the credits end and you sit and wait for this little bit of preview for the next film. It grabs you by suspense and then you find out you have to wait a year or two for the film to make it into the cinema world.
Well, that’s what Winter did, she wrapped it up and then added a suspenseful scene.
I am delighted to have read that there will be a second book and I for one cannot wait!
