Find on Amazon
Tyce Sanders is like most kids. He's got interests like robots, and has a wonderful mom. The biggest difference is that he lives on Mars. Tyce keeps a journal of his adventures. The first journal details the lack of oxygen and the plans taken to figure out a way to save as many of the community as possible. The second journal details the adventures in finding some aliens.
I really wasn't to expect when I started this book. Yet as I got into it, I soon found myself captivated with Tyce and his adventures. Tyce is searching for answers and as much as he loves his mother, he's a little wary of her faith in God. What I found really interesting was that each journal picks up immediately at the conclusion of the one prior. So yes the second journal leaves it open for the next book.
I think that middle aged boys, specifically ages 8 and up, would really enjoy this book. It's full of adventure, perilous situations, and robots.
I read this book for pure pleasure as part of the Tyndale Summer Reading Program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of middle readers, robots, science fiction, Harry Potter, Nicholas Flamel, adventure
