The Suburb Beyond the Stars Book Review

( 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.

You want to take up a responsibility at the age of 12. That is good...proves that you are really mature for your age. Good luck!  You should try out what you would like to do as a profession, it will help you to understand how it will be in the future. You should try them out...!

I'm 11 at the moment. Turning twelve at the end of May. I really want to try out babysitting or petsitting. I've helped out in the preschool area of my old school, and sometimes help the little girl across the street when I'm playing with her older siblings. I'm also very mature for my age.   ​With the petsitting thing, I've been around lots of different types of animals. From a lizard to a horse. I also want to be  a veterinarian when I'm older so I think it will be a good thing for me to do. ​P.S. I plan on taking a Red Cross babysitting course.
