Great for Younger Readers!
on July 30, 2012
Swipe was a great action read that I think is fantastic for younger readers, but that some adults will also enjoy (I did!).
Some of the things in Swipe were very plausible, which made for a more realistic/believable story. While the beginning of the book was good, I enjoyed the second half much more that the first.
There are a few things in this book that, while I didn't have a problem with them, others might, so I thought I'd mention them: some name calling (but the names were really silly, like tightwad, miser, and piker to name a few) and a few kids punched each other, fought, etc. As I said, none of that bothered me.
There were a couple things in Swipe I didn't see coming, but they were nice surprises and made the book more interesting to read.
All in all, a good book that I recommend more for younger readers, but if you enjoy middle grade/young adult books, you'll probably like this one as well. The ending was great and leaves me wanting to read Evan's next book, Sneak, which releases this fall.
