I was hoping this would be a great dystopian novel to recommend to 5th, 6th, and 7th graders, given the more mature content of books like The Hunger Games and Ship Breaker. But Six Days, for me, feels like it lacks identity, like it's trying too hard to be too many things. It's a little dystopian and a little science fiction (sometimes weird science fiction) and a little adventure with a little romance added at the last moment. The futuristic British slang made it difficult to get into a "reading rhythm," but after 25 pages or so I was able to follow events without a problem. Ultimately, this isn't a title I will go out of my way to recommend to young readers.
