I gave this book 3 stars though it really should be 2.5.
It was a good read for middle school age students due to the story being interesting, but it also had negatives of racism and sexism which lead me to give it a lower rating.
The story has some suspense, and is easy to comprehend, but the negatives hurt my rating.
Billie, a girl must pass as a boy to survive as all girls are killed in the world they have entered through a portal. The goal is to escape this alternative world, but first they must survive. The story is imaginative and has some archeological ties, which are pluses.
The negatives are the sexism as stated above, and racism. I feel that these two things are a reason to not recommend the book, unless there will be discussion regarding these issues so as to show that they are not things we support in today's world.
This was an entertaining, quick read. I think my middle schooler would love it. There was action and suspense. I did see the end coming, but it was a good read nonetheless. Clean and suspenseful for the middle school crowd. Recommended. :)
