Gerald and the Wee People by Greta Burroughs

I got this book as part of a face book event group read.  That being said, I got behind and never got the chance to join the group read.  I’m sorry Greta!  However, I hope that by giving you a review you will forgive me.
I really enjoyed reading this book.  The author took a few plot twists that I probably wouldn’t have taken and when I read them I wondered how in the world that was ever going to work out but I have to say she surprised me every single time.  I fell in love with the wee people and especially the far-seers.  As far as I’m concerned they were the heroes here.

The world created by Burroughs was fantastic.  I got lost a couple times with where the boundaries were but the story didn’t really need them.  As the group traveled the world just seemed to go with them.  Still a bit unclear on that but I don’t feel I’ve missed out on anything.

The plot was fun, the story believable, the outcome wonderful and the entire book was entertaining.  I wouldn’t mind coming back to visit the wee people once in a while and probably will!
