** spoiler alert ** Wow! This book was intense and amazing. Every detail was really confusing until they all wrapped together into a big bow of ending-ness! There are no other words for this book except for heart-wrenchingly, achingly, beautifully perfect. When George pulled through and Martin's mom got back,I broke out in tears of joy!
Summary: Martin Maple had lived on an island with his father for as long as he could remember, but one day, his father doesn't return for him. Martin is disappointed because he had hoped to finish the machine that could bring back his lost mother. As that is impossible without the parts that Martin's father had left to find, Martin just sets off to find whatever he can. He uncovers Xibalba, a place where other forgotten kids ended up, and uses their talents to help him make a very large version of the very same machine Martin and his father were working on. As more and more people are brought back, people try to retrieve their family and friends. Soon, Xibalba is a hub for everyone who is missing their loved ones, but Martin is set aside. He uses his free time to find his mother after George, a boy from the other side of the island, pulls through with his information of where his mother would be.
