Space Between Worlds Review

Title: Space Between Worlds
Author: Micaiah Johnson
Type: Science Fiction, Mystery
Pages: 323
Rating: 4/5

It is only one world in infinite universes where this impossible happiness exists, but that is what makes it so valuable.

Adam Bosch has figured out how to travel to parallel universes. The only catch is that you can’t travel to universes where you are still alive. Cara is hired to traverse, or travel to other parallel universes, because she is dead on 372 other worlds. Cara collects data for the Eldridge Institute on each Earth with Earth 0 being her home. Soon she discovers a secret that could cost her her life.

The story is complex and has a lot of action scenes. The science fiction piece of traveling between worlds is unique and the reader is pulled into the story right away. I would have liked to see more of the world jumping. I also felt at times, that the story was hard to follow for a number of reasons. Theres quite a few characters and then you add in that those same characters on earth 0 are named something different on other worlds and it gets confusing. The different locations… or cities could have been explained better too but maybe I missed something in the beginning. All that aside the story had some twists I didn’t see coming and once again had some pretty strong female characters which is always a huge plus.

Dry Review

Title: Dry
Author: Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman
Type: Young Adult, Dystopia, Science Fiction
Pages: 390
Rating: 5/5

I love Neal Shusterman. His books always manage to pull me in almost right away. Dry did not disappoint. California has been in drought for years when suddenly the water is completely turned off. Now it’s every person for themselves as everyone tries to survive. Alyssa’s parents go on a hunt to find water and don’t return. Alyssa and her brother Garrett’s team up with Kelton, a neighbor and whose family have always been doomsday preppers (you might be wondering why doomsday prepares don’t have water… well I’m not going to tell you why. Read the book and you’ll have to find out) on a hunt to find water. They meet people along the way and they must do unthinkable things in order to survive.

I loved everything about this book, the characters, the storyline and the ending. Shusterman has this unique ability to make the reader feel as if they are along for the ride in all of his stories. I will say, it was… interesting to read this fictional catastrophic event while we are in the middle of our own global pandemic. I also love when stories contain resilent teenage characters.
