I really liked the first book, but this one was just meh. This was my second time reading it and I didn't like it any more than the first time. Everything just fell a bit flat for me and I didn't like most of the characters or the plot.

The book is a interesting book about a kid who broke out of a mental hospital. and they gave him a good story and a raven that has kept watching over him. but at first the book is not really all that interesting but it gets more interesting with the new charaters and the new setting and what they thought about the boy then and now because the opinions change some just did not like him at all a he thought that the boy was a waste of time and kept badmouthing him. in his mind everytime he closes h ...more

Set in a near future North American dystopia, where some people have different abilities. I've labelled this one "fantasy" but really there is little in here that does not exist. The Militia, however, would be attracting much more serious attention from the US government than happens in this book. However, I enjoyed this book a great deal. Shamanic elements combined with domestic terrorism and the uneasy co-existence between the two. When is it ok to resist evil? Does resisting evil make you evi ...more

Good companion novel to The Ark, perhaps even a little more interesting due to the remote survivalist setting and showing things from the perspective of the resistance fighters (a.k.a. domestic terrorists). I appreciated the format being straightforward text this time. I was a little surprised it didn't catch up to the epilogue at the end of book 1, leaving the story feeling unfinished, but I did see a lot of interesting parallels to the current political climate in the U.S.

I enjoyed the issues this book brought up. I didn't know it was a sequel, but I felt it was able to stand on its own without making me feel that I didn't know the whole story.

This book can be used as a leader into discussions on population control, ESP, human connectedness, terrorism, biowar, power, politics. I really enjoyed all the questions it made me think of. I like books that make me think.

YA. Follow up to Welcome to the Ark. Still interesting POV.

Although geared to middle andn high schoolers, it makes you think about so many important issues. Whether it's autism, biowar, disfunctional families....the writing is so interesting.

Quite enjoyable.
I didn't like this one as well as the first, but I'm glad to not be left hanging about what happened to Elijah! Still goof though.

I liked this one even better than "Welcome to the Ark," but it is a sequel so read the other one first. They're both really good.

Stephanie S. Tolan's earliest memories involve books. Those that were read to her and those she read to herself, often late at night with a flashlight under the covers. She always thought there was a special magic in the little black marks on paper that could turn into whole worlds and real people. Born in Ohio and raised in Wisconsin, she wrote her first story in the fourth grade. It was thrillin ...more
