“I love fantasy so I read this book. The characters really showed the adventure, and problem that the reality is facing. I really felt all the drama and suspence as Iread this book. This book is a adventure, and a real story about a boy an his letter that he got, and that he and 10 others are the only people who can save the the realties.”Emily wrote this review Wednesday, October 26, 2011.

“I enjoyed this book. It reminds me a little of "The Mysterious Benedict Society" because of the whole "kid fighting squad" thing. I was never bored; I always looked forward to picking up the book.
Also, it was so refreshing to have the parents included in this story. Usually with young protaganists, the parents either die, are already dead, or are decieved throughout the entire book on the principle that the hero's "got bigger problems now." I was so glad when Tick included his dad in the new world he had just discovered.”

“This is an amazing book. It's predictable if you know how to predict books, but it's amazing and action filled. It's a wonderful book and, I have to say, James Dashner is an amazing author, deffinately one of my favorites. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.”Nerine Rose, spirit of Spring, Guardian of Compassion ~*I'm in school again... Boo.*~ wrote this review Thursday, July 21, 2011.

“What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created -- the life that would've been? What if those new Realities were in danger? What if it fell to you to save all the realities? Atticus Higginbottom, a.k.a. Tick, is a regular thirteen-year-old boy living a regular life until the day a strange letter arrives in his mailbox. Postmarked from Alaska and cryptically signed with the initials "M.G.," the letter informs Tick that dangerous -- perhaps even deadly -- events have been set in motion that could result in the destruction of reality itself. M.G. promises to send Tick twelve riddles that will reveal that on a certain day, at a certain time, at a certain place, something extraordinary will happen. Will Tick have the courage to follow the twelve clues M.G. sends to him? Will he be able to solve the riddles in time? As M.G. warns Tick, very frightening things are coming your way. Will you join Tick and his friends on an amazing journey through the Realities? What will your choice be? (From Titlepeek)
I really enjoyed this fantasy. I liked how the author allowed the reader to try to figure out the clues on their own if they so choose. Tick is a likable character as are the characters from different realities. Mr. Higginbottom is believable especially when it comes to worrying about his son when he goes off to help others.
This fantasy is certainly worth reading.”
