I first read this book under its original title of ‘The Travis Theory’ I think back in 2009, I can tell you that although the story is the original, the major editing made the book easier to read and much sweeter. This was Mr. Meggs first novel.
It follows the story of young Travis, who is a little different to other kids of the same age, and his friends who experience an event that changes the world forever. The boys have to fight to survive and discover what happened.
I am not going to spoil the story, but what I can say is that characters are realistic and true to their age range and cope with the circumstances as you would expect teenagers to, considering the circumstances that they find themselves in. One character that is intriguing though is Giovanni, he appears in ways that don’t seem to tie in with the main characters but you will need to read the book to find out why 🙂 .
The story is fluent and will keep you reading all the way until the end, and you will need to finish the book to realize what is going on. Along the way I believe you will laugh, cry and feel you are part of the story.
Rating: 5 out of 5.
