Agartha's Castaway by Chrissy Peebles

This is a delightful romp into what could be.  Even though it was all explained eventually it was nice to explore a world of possibilities as the characters moved from reality to could it be true to that’s impossible.  I very much enjoyed the journey with them and was sad when it ended.

As an adult reader, however, I found the constant bickering between the boys became annoying beyond belief.  As a teen reader, I would probably have found it cute.  Peebles did an awesome job of portraying teens as they are at their most annoying and it defiantly brought out the mother in me in that I wanted to smack their heads together!  I’m not sure, though, that I would change anything.  Maybe tone it down a bit or let them grow up a little.  After everything they go through I would think they would get some level of maturity.  Maybe.

I very much enjoyed reading this book with its twists and turns, constant adventure and even the time I wanted to smack those boys for being so immature!  This is a definite must read.
