Young Adult Book Reviews!

Welcome to the first in a series of young people reviewing the books they like! We will post these on the facebook site as well, so you can join in discussions there. ENJOY!

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

Gregor the Overlander is an action-packed book with great characters, adventure and funny parts. I loved this book. I would always pass it on the shelf and not get it, but when I finally read it I was blown away. I read all of the five books in this series. I have turned other people on to it and they loved it just like I did!

Gregor is a boy whose family is poor since his father mysteriously disappeared. One day Gregor’s little sister, Boots, falls down an air duct in the laundry room. He follows her and the air currents carry him away. He finds himself in the underground city, Underland, with giant cockroaches, bats, rats, and people with almost transparent skin and violet eyes. Gregor is named the chosen one and has to uncover a prophecy and go on adventures. Is this where his dad disappeared? Will Gregor ever get back home? Will the Underland survive? If you want these questions answered, read this book and you’ll be hooked!
