( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Something very strange is going on in Vermont. And best friends Brian and Gregory begin to find out why! Check out Kidzworlds book review of The Suburb Beyond the Stars by M.T. Anderson.

Title: The Suburb Beyond the Stars
Author: M.T. Anderson
Ages: 9+
Rating: 4


We first met best friends Brian and Gregory in M.T. Anderson’s first book, A Game of Sunken Places. After participating in a game which had the boys unknowingly fighting for two different ancient species, Brian walked away the victor.

Missing

Now it’s the boys’ turn to design the game for the next round of innocent participants. But something strange is going on. Gregory’s cousin Prudence hasn’t returned his latest emails. And they’re always in constant contact. Where could she be? Is she in trouble? There’s only one way to find out.


Houses Take Over

Gregory and Brian go and visit Prudence. But when they arrive, things get even stranger. The area that was once a forest is now a community filled with houses. And the houses are being built faster than humanly possible. To top it all off, Prudence is missing.


A Possible Kidnapping

The boys search her house, but there’s no sign of Prudence. They check her computer and find a half written email to Gregory. Why hadn’t she finished writing? Did she get distracted or did someone—or something—kidnap her?! When Gregory questions the neighbors about her disappearance, they all seem to be functioning in a different time zone. Things are getting weirder and weirder. And the boys suspect that something unearthly is behind it.


The Bottom Line

The Suburb Beyond the Stars by M.T. Anderson is a gripping novel. It combines adventure, fantasy, legends and a little bit of horror to make the perfect invigorating read. If you like adventure stories, but you prefer short books, then check out The Suburb Beyond the Stars. But first, read the story from the beginning with The Game of Sunken Places.

Cut off all ties with her if you havent. also to avoid getting crap from your parents tell them ure not bi, and that you've realized its a sin or something lmao. doesnt matter what others think, as long as youre true to yourself you'll be fine. But seriously tho, rek that kid. Do not get revenge on her. as it may sound good now, it will not be after you do. plus do not lie to your parents. i know that it was a bad thing to send you away, but if you lie and say "ooh yup i'm straight i know i sinned blah blah blah" it will help at the moment but in a few weeks/months/years they will find the truth and you will be in even more trouble.

Give a valid reason why you don't support trans people without using the Bible or any religion.

All these lame excuses about what the Bible says make me laugh. The Bible also says that you can't work on sundays you can't eat pork you can't divorce you can't cheat you can't wear clothes and you can't hate because all of that is a sin. But you don't see people being so uptight about that do you? Only when it comes to someone who was born different  the Bible is convenient to you and matters. Trans people aren't doing any harm to anyone they just want to be who they are. So let them be who they are. There's nothing wrong with that. So keep your lame bible excuses about what god said is right or wrong because it's 2017 not 10BC
