I enjoyed the writing style in this book. It’s concise and clear, with a lot of emotional scenes between characters. The writer shows us the inner feelings of each character, and there is some powerful dialogue. The characters are deep and complex with authentic relationships.
However, the plot moves slowly in the beginning, and it took awhile to really get some action moving. Once things started really happening, I was delighted with the mystery, the alien skills, and the dangerous adventures.
One thing I did NOT like, because it is my personal pet peeve… There are multiple POVs that flip-flop between the characters. This really annoyed me. I would have liked the story much better if it had only been told from Ben’s perspective.
I enjoyed reading this book, and I think that middle grade and teen readers would love the action and mystery!
