It's a weird book. The concept was interesting, unfortunately it wasn't captivating.
I think of this more like a short story. It was not very well developed, no back story, no glimpse into any sort of future. It was written like a trite little adventure though I felt that the characters could mean more and have more of a purpose.
I believe that the only reason I finished this book was because it was so short I didn't have time to really hate it.
This was a decent book. I was surprised by the inclusion of the issue of childhood obesity with the main character...this is something that should be addressed but seldom is in children's literature, I feel.

It shows how lonely you'll be when you try to take things that aren't yours(Lexeter). How you shouldn't listen to or follow threats you should tell someone and get help.

I loved Thomas Bloor's "London Calling". This book was a disappointment.

The premise sounded intriguing, but it just didn't grab me.
