Children Of The FutureChildren Of The Future by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about mystery. Telly’s usual working week is altered when his school bus of children disappears. With only one child left, Telly panics and starts a search for the other children, one search turns into several as the whole town becomes involved. Can they find the missing children before its too late?
A great read, Well developed plot with twists and turns that just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Telly doing his best but with his worries underneath or Billy inquisitive but vulnerable underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like the friendly and supportive Ray or the suspicious Steve.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like wit the school full of life and people made eerly empty wonderfully written. Or the clearing under the moon by the lake beautiful but still mysterious with the footprints in the mud. Also loved the small details like the watch and te footprints small but so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
I also liked the routine every day feel of the first few chapters contrasting with the unusual mystery of the situation beautifully written. I also liked the use of the days in the chapter headings giving the novel a fast paced feel was a great addition.I loved the use of mystery with suspense drawn out to perfection with details revealed slowly, making you want to read on to find out what happened Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
