Who I'd Recommend to: Fans of Harry Potter, Heroes of the distant planets series and other fun otherworldly books.
Synopsis (from Amazon): Surviving Lan Darr not only changed Allan’s life, it rocked him to his core. On Earth, he’s simply a boy in a wheelchair who got lost in the woods, but across the Hubbu connected planetary system, Allan is a hero. He must find a way back there, alone if need be.
Returning to Lan Darr might just kill him. Though he’s learned the hard way that Allan Westerfield does not die easily.
Back on Earth, Allan’s uncle and his best friend race after Allan without an inkling of how deadly Hubbu travel can be. Chaos ensues, spawning disorder, confusion and panic as the travelers end up on different worlds at different times and face extreme ecosystems, mysterious enemies and push the clock of death to the absolute breaking point.
I also loved this book for how it shows a few worlds traveled by three different groups of people, and how every single one of them had a different experience. For example, Allan, the main character, goes to Peebland and is treated like a king by the Peeblies. But then Rubic and Jibbawk goes to Peebland, and they get attacked by the Peeblies and giant dinosaurs. And when Laura and Alice go to Peebland, they almost get killed by lava and have to be saved by Peeblies. This was one of my favorite parts of the book.
Overall, this book and series is amazing and one of my personal favorites.
