Book Review: The Search for WondLa by Tony DiTerlizzi

Jun 18, 2012

Eva Nine and her alien pals search for more of the human race in Tony DiTerlizzi’s amazing book, The Search for WondLa. Kidzworld has the book review.

Sprung From Below

Eva Nine has spent her entire 12 years of her life in an underground sanctuary with her robot guardian Muthr as her only companion. But when a dark creature named Besteel destroys her home, she’s forced to go aboveground. For the first time, Eva Nine experiences the wind on her face and the sun on her skin. But there’s no shortage of dangers above, especially when her omnipod - a portable mini-computer - can’t identify any of the native creatures.

The Human Race

On her run from Besteel, Eva Nine meets a friendly creature named Rovender and an armor-clad behemoth named Otto, who communicates with no one but her. Both agree to protect Eva Nine as she journey's to save Muthr from her sanctuary’s destruction and search for more human beings.

The Enemy

Meanwhile, Besteel is still hot on her trail. Will Eva Nine be able to evade Besteel long enough to find more of her kind? Or will her search for the human race prove impossible?

The Bottom Line

The Search for WondLa is the first book in Tony DiTerlizzi's science fiction series for middle grade readers. It is a fantastic adventure filled with wonderful images, loveable characters and a magical world. Check back for our review of the second book in the WondLa series, A Hero for WondLa.

If you take a pregnancy test, it shows positive, and then you go to a feminine doctor to make sure, do you get an ultrasound? No because you won't find a heartbeat. You get a blood test, or maybe even a pee sample. A child heart's start beating after 22 days of conception. A women does not have an abortion before 22 days (or even right after). It's extremely dangerous.

You get a blood test, or maybe even a ##### sample. Heartbeat is not the measure of living or not living. Many organisms don't even have hearts. It is 'alive', but not conscious. I think that's the more important distinction.  Yes this is true. But let me put it this way. Let's say a 13 year old girl got pregnant against her will. She, and her baby, may not make it through the birth. And with the possibilty of her death and the baby's, you'll still say that she can not get an abortion? That is just not right.

However, we do not treat all death or all killing the same way, and I do not believe that locking people in prison for abortion is going to resolve the fact that sometimes women will try to get rid of their pregnancies.   With all crime, making it illegal will not resolve it. But it will slim down immensely. Okay but now we're imprisoning otherwise productive members of society, for the goal of 'sending a message' that society doesn't approve of abortion. I think that's rather totalitarian.

But it will slim down immensely. That's definitely NOT how crime works. When you make something illegal that people want you just create an unsafe market for it. Prohibition is the best example of this
