I was happy to write an honest review of this book for the author in exchange for a free copy of the book.
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.

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
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. :)

This is a cleverly written science fiction piece from Australia for the young reader or listener. It is imaginative, has mystery and stars Billie, her brother Charlie and Uncle Bill. There are lots of clues, archeological tidbits and cultural artifacts to explore. Although I am a senior reader and probably not a good listener I was fascinated by the plot and read it from start to finish.

First, let me discuss the story. It really is a neat concept. I won't give a description of the plot here since I'd just be repeating the description above. All in all, it was a solid storyline and it keeps you engaged. There are a couple of instances where the plot is predictable, but that did not stop me from reading. In terms of the writing style, there are a few things I would like to see different. The plot moves along quickly, maybe too quickly. I would love to see more description and definitely more character development. I really didn't like the character of Billie throughout the book. I was not able to lose myself in the book because of this. Also, I feel like I didn't know anything about the narrator of the book, Charlie. He is billie's brother but I didn't get a feel for his character. The ending had a twist that I wasn't quite expecting and neatly tied up all loose ends. It was an engaging book that I read in one sitting and would recommend for a quick read. The lack of 4 stars is due to character development. I'd like to give 3.5 stars....

Note: I received a free copy of this book for review
