Review by: Avalon Palm (12 years old)
The first thing I would like to mention is that, originally, my dad was supposed to write this review, but the day he finished reading it, he told the whole family that we should read it. Later that night I was in bed, but I couldn't sleep. I wasn't tired. So like I usually do, I decided to read a book. I picked up my kindle and searched through the various books before I remembered what dad had said earlier. I opened Alex Wayfare and started reading. If I was a negative person, I would complain that for almost a whole chapter I didn't know whether or not Alex was a boy or a girl, but I'm not and therefore I shall delve into sharing this mystery, because I have read the book and you have not, but you should; you REALLY should.
When I turned to the first page I had no idea what to expect, no idea of what idea had taken place in M. G. Buehrlen's mind to create this story, and Buehrlen started with such an obvious line I knew it was going to be a good book.
I read and at first thought it was going to be one of those books just about a girl. Any random girl, any random storyline; but you get the idea. As I read on it captivated my interest so much that when Dad told me to go to bed, I ignored him and kept reading.
The story is about a girl with visions. At first she thinks its déjà vu, but her theory is discredited later. She really wants to stop having the visions, but she keeps having them. One day, a vision comes and unlike the others lasts for more than a couple minutes. She delves into a world of mystery and time-travel, or soul-travel. At the end of the book, she escapes a research facility, and saves two lives. Then she severely injures both. Equally interesting in this book is her normal life. To see Alex change from extreme nerd to extreme nerd whom is friends with popular guy is fascinating.
And to conclude, I admit this review was probably horrid. It explained nothing. But then again, I bet it made you want to read the book. Am I right?
