About the Book and Author
This is a sci-fi style mystery that also describes how friendships can evolve and face periods of ups-and-downs as we grow up.
Confused and curious to find they are the only people awake, Ana and her ex-best friend Tio set off on a mission to discover what’s happening. As they journey through the city looking for clues, their friendship gradually mends. When a mysterious creature suddenly materialises in front of them, Ana realises they’ve found the answer they’ve been looking for.
I liked the way the story showed how friendships can change sometimes
This was the best book I have read recently.
I felt really bad for Ana at first, she seemed to be having a really hard time and I liked the way the story showed how friendships can change sometimes. This seemed particularly important to me right now as I have just changed schools and friendship groups.
I thought at first this was going to be quite a typical school / friendship book so I was surprised at the turn it took.
The concept of everyone being asleep and only those two were awake was very creepy. I really enjoyed their adventure and the new creature they discovered was really cool I liked that it wasn’t just monster = evil.
My favourite character was actually DoDo, she seemed a fun Aunt and her job seemed very interesting.
The case notes were an interesting way to break up the chapters and the extra section at the end was good.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone 9 years +.
