Author: Truant D. Memphis

Pub. Date: November 1, 2022

Publisher: Tdm, Ink

Pages: 116


A passage. This story is a passage. A chapter from my earliest adventures. A moment in time recounting the first time I traveled through time...or something like that. I may have been dimension-hopping. We're still not certain. Anyway, I share this with you because it was also the first time (time, time, time...) I met Ezekiel and Jacob Trate, or any other member of the Trate family. I share this with you because it was the first time I met Frank. I share this with you because the whole deal was a portal full of fun (you'll get this joke once you start reading).



 

Book Review:


I give THE BOY WHO FELL FROM THE PAST ⭐⭐⭐1/2!


This time travel "passage", as the book states and it's just that a passage, is very short with a total of 103 pages and 3 chapters. The book begins with the main character, Truant (same name as the author, which is a fun way to promote the book), falling from the sky and into Lake St. Clair near Detroit. He's rescued by Ezekiel and Jake in the year 3023. During this time cities are sold to private companies or the Elon Musks of the time to pay for America's huge debt. It's a truly chaotic, Hunger Game-type future.


What I liked best about the book.


Most time travel books I've read for kids always travel to the past so it's refreshing to read a new story of time travel to the future. Also, this is a great book for teens or middle schoolers who don't like to read, because it's so short and does have some fun action scenes and humor. Plus, the author does well creating a future that feels possible.


What I didn't like about the book.


It's too short! I wanted more and when it started to get good it was over, this could be irritating for some readers. Finally, while there was physical action nothing really happened to the main character. Truant didn't have an internal conflict, which was hard for me to read because I love books that are character-driven.


Overall, it's a good book and I feel most teens and tweens will appreciate it.
