Land of Corn Chips is the second novel from author Angela Carlie, a middle grade fantasy. Nate is an eleven year old boy obsessed with wrestling and football. He is a kid that many of us can relate to, regardless of our age. He is an average kid, in a family divided by divorce. He feels that his dad has chosen his new girlfriend and her daughter over him and it hurts him. An offhanded wish he makes to himself proves to be the worst thing he could have done. In moments his life changes in unbelievable ways. From the moment Nate is swept into the Land of Corn Chips, the reader is right there with him. The story was full of action and lots of unexpected twists that keep you turning the pages. The world in which the story was set was a very interesting one, too. There were just enough elements of reality blended with the fantasy to create a very surreal world. Just as you were gliding along with the fantasy elements, there would be something that sparked of reality. Other times, the story would follow very real lines and the fantasy would creep back in. I loved the twisting and turning of reality and fantasy, keeping you, as the reader somewhere in between them.

The character of Nate was the perfect hero for this story. I like that he was developed to be a regular kid with no special abilities, an average kid. His strength and his refusal to give in and give up were part of what made him such a great character. He wasn't afraid of taking the lead and he had compassion for the other kids, always thinking beyond himself. The other characters, both minor and main, were all equally well developed. Whether you liked them or not as a character, they were fully believable.

I really enjoyed this book, and my 14 year old son will soon be reading it and reviewing it as a guest blogger on my site. There are a few minorly gory scenes, but not inappropriately so. I definately recommend this book!

I'm honestly not one hundred percent sure how to explain my feelings about this book. Land of Corn Chips is the first fantasy based middle grade book that I've read, and it was definitely an experience. I kept having to remind myself that I was seeing this world through a much younger person's eyes. However once I was able to get into that mindset, I began to understand the world that Nate was immersed in. I must admit, it's a rather interesting place to be!

Young readers will be treated to a very believable protagonist. Nate has problems like any other young person. His dad is spending more time with his new family, rather than with him. His dad keeps missing his important football games. Worst of all, his dad doesn't tend to follow through with his promises. Sound familiar? To a lot of kids out there it definitely will. Lest you think that Nate is whiny about all of this, he's not! Instead he's quite an intelligent young boy. I liked how he thought everything through when he was faced with a problem.

Enter Cornelius Chip. Nate is whisked magically off to a place where he might have thought he wanted to be, but now realizes was a mistake! See Nate wishes he could grow up so he can take care of himself and not have to rely on his parents. Again, sound familiar? Let's just say his wish is granted. What ensues is a fascinating, sometimes slightly confusing but always fun, adventure. Yet again I must applaud Nate's character. This setting brings out even more of his resourcefulness and tenacity. This boy doesn't give up, and I adored him for that.

Land of Corn Chips is definitely a different kind of middle grade novel than I've ever read before. I applaud Angela Carlie for meshing a very realistic character and such a quirky and interesting world.

I don't read YA. I really dont. But I had been asked to read one chapter of this book when it was a work in progress. I loved it. The writer's skill blew me away. Now that the book has been released, I had to buy it.
I wasn't disappointed at all, on any level. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I think you will too.

Land of Corn Chips is quirky fun for the YA reader. You'll root hard for Nate and laugh at his foibles even as you recoil from the awful state he puts himself into, and laugh harder at his evil but myopic antagonist. The dystopian Land of Corn Chips is unfortunately as realistic as it is fantastic, a sweatshop of industrialism and child labor we wish was impossible. Alas, we know better; even if this particular dark world exists only in Carlie's imagination (and yours, as you read), we know its real-world counterparts still flourish. You'll be rooting for Nate to escape, and hopefully, all of his real-world counterparts to do the same.
