“I really didn’t understand at first. But as the years went by, I thought it was my fault. It was a very confusing time for me. “
I love reading Fantasy genre books and this one is one of them. The story-line is amazing and if you love fantasy too then its a must buy. Now lets talk about the book.
The story is about an 8 year boy named Joshua who was bipolar and suffering from anxiety. His world crashes when his parents divorce each other. Frustrated from his life he always used to daydream about imaginary worlds where no problem existed. His adventure begins when he suddenly falls down while going to school.
Joshua is depicted as a weak and lonely child who never made a friend in school. But as the story progresses, so does his character. The story is all about Joshua being transported from his world to the imaginary world , called the world of Ice Plants, in order to save it from the evil powers. Why was only he chosen in order to save the ice plants ? What special abilities he had? Go read the novel and know the answer to these questions.
I really loved how the author described everything in detail. Her work is written in such a good way with simplicity and clarity. This novel is full of fantasy elements and suspense and you won’t be able to put down the book without finishing it.
Also a very important message was conveyed by the author of valuing one’s family and knowing their importance in our life.
“There is no such thing as a broken family. Family is family and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. and if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”
My Rating : 4/5
