About the Book and Poet
From Mitch Johnson, the author of the the acclaimed book Kick is an exciting and thought-provoking story for children aged 10-13 years. This story is set in an apocalyptic world where the characters Ash and Bronwyn are fighting to survive. Our young reviewer’s favourite character is Vivienne. I wonder who yours will be…
I think the scene in the caves was written very well because the description was good but scary and it made you really want to see what happened next
The book is about two children, Ash and Bronwyn, who set out to the Kingdom to find missing residents of Last village and the reason for the current drought. My favourite character was Vivienne as I found her funny and serious at the same time.
The story kept me guessing as there were mysteries around every corner. I think the scene in the caves was written very well because the description was good but scary and it made you really want to see what happened next.
The story kept me turning the pages, it didn’t really make me laugh or cry but made me excited and scared. The only thing I disliked about the book is that some of my questions went unanswered and that I didn’t find out what happened to some of the characters.
I’d recommend this book to children who are over 10 years old and who like mystery, action and adventure novels a meaning. I’d give it 8 out of 10 and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
