If you like YA books, and stuff that is a little bit different, you'll love this one. I did. I finished it just a couple of days, and that's rare with my super busy schedule.

I normally don't focus well reading while at my kids' extracurriculars (dance, gymnastics, cheerleading, etc.). I see other parents doing it, but that's always been hard for me. Reading is a more "private" thing to me - I don't feel comfortable reading when there's other people around me doing other things. But, for this book, I found a way around it. I'd sit out in the car and read while practice was going on.

I enjoyed it so much that I bought the next two books of the 5-book series the same night I finished this one while waiting at dance classes and started reading the next one

It covers some interesting topics for kids to learn from, including war, mass murder, plagues, etc., but in a unique way involving super large creatures that have their own world under the ground inside teh earth. Cool stuff.
