Overview

The Boy Who Fell from the Sky by Jule Owen

The world is falling apart in 2055. Another flood has devastated London, on the eve of the First Space War. With the city locked down, sixteen-year-old Mathew Erlang is confined to his house with only his cat, his robot and his holographic dragons for company.

Desperate for a distraction from the chaos around him, Mathew becomes fascinated by his peculiar and reclusive neighbour, August Lestrange. Mathew begins to investigate Mr. Lestrange, turning to the virtual world of the Nexus and Blackweb for answers. But as he digs deeper, Mathew realises that Mr. Lestrange doesn’t seem quite human.

When Mathew accidentally finds himself trapped in Lestrange’s house, he opens a door and falls four hundred years into the future. Unwittingly, he starts to destabilise the course of human history.

The Boy Who Fell from the Sky delves into a future where climate change and technology have transformed the world. It is the first book in The House Next Door trilogy, a young adult dystopian science fiction action adventure.

WOW!! If virtual reality and time travel could get married in a high-tech, yet increasingly-dystopian, world--this book would be their child...their unique, wonderful child. Devoured this in a single day, and can't wait to read the rest of this remarkable trilogy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am disappointed that the remaining 2 books are NOT available for my Nook. What gives with that Barnes & Noble?

Most of these are written from the angst ridden teenager's view of the world. That's okay as long as long the teenager is intelligent, well-spoken, curious and rebellious like Matthew. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
