Little Kid Reaction: The House of the Scorpion is a gripping novel depicting the struggle between science and humanity. It is a great read for any teenager who enjoys science-fiction or thrillers. Nancy Farmer truly knows how to keep a reader coming back for more. As we learn more about Matteo Alacran's life and the society he lives in, Farmer inserts issues like immigration, drug use, slavery, and labor rights in a very real way. One can't help but question: Is this in our future? All-in-all, Nancy Farmer's novel The House of the Scorpion is a creative, dynamic science-fiction read.
