    My review on The Sky Inside. I would give this book 5 out of 5

    My review on The Sky Inside.

    I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it was very interesting. The book talks about what could happen in the future of the world. This book is about a thirteen year old, Martin Glass, that lives under a dome. Everyone tells him that he is lucky to be able to live under the dome. They said that the outside world is to dangerous to live in. Martin has a mom, a dad, and a younger sister, Cassie. Cassie is a wonder baby. Wonder babies are specially engeneered, for their parent's wants and needs. All the houses in the dome are similar and everything is normal in the suburb. Until a man came to the suburb in a boxcar. The boxcar is the only way to get in or out of the suburb. The man takes all the yonger wonder babies including Martin's sister. The man said that he was taking the wonder babies to a special school somewhere outside of the dome. Martin was mad that everyone, in the dome, because they just excepted the idea that a man took all the wonder babies. Martin decided to leave the dome and to save his sister. Martin got out with the help of his robotic dog. If you want to learn more about what happens next then read the book! I recommend this book to any young adult reader. I would recommend it for them because this book has lots of interesting adventures. It makes you want to read more and more. Every chapter you get to builds suspence to the reader. Also This book is about the future. It uses robots and many other cool and interestying things. Many young adults like reading science fiction. They also like futuristic machines and robots.

    more from this reviewer

    Seems interesting enough.

    But I don't understand how an ebook could be more expensive than a hardcover copy of the same story.

    The idea was very interesting itself, but I was sad to see that the author did not do a great job on writing it. The beginning was interesting, but as the novel prgressed I felt less and less interested. I couldn't even finish the book because I got so bored. I didn't understad what was supposed to be happening, and why the author had to describe every tiny detail.

    Great Potential and unfolding plot--needs a sequel!

    From the beginning the story is very engrossing, building an excellent plot...but the ending is ponderous (spoiler alerts) Who exactly did Martin's Father meet with and what is the nature of that authority? Who made the AllDog and what is their agenda? How many models are their beyond dish 14? etc. I enjoyed the questions of citizenship and consumerism raised by this book and I think these could be further developed; leading to an excellent contemplation by not only teens but also adults. This book really needs a part two to complete the journey! A resolution would increase my ratings dramatically. BTW there is NO reason the NOOK version should be so expensive!
