Bridgeworld by Travis McBee

I was given this book by the author for review.

I thought this book sounded very interesting.  Small town boy who finds out he is an alien and goes to his home planet to go to school, Bridgeworld.  When I started this book I was not sure what to expect, but I actually enjoyed the book.  I think it would be a great book for a pre-teen/young teenager.

Best parts:  I liked Travis McBee's writing.  I thought he wrote amazing character and his imagination of Bridgeworld was very creative.  Will (main character) is the popular teenager.  Nice girlfriend, plays football, and has friends.  But, in no time his life changes.  He loses his popularity, finds out about his family and is soon headed to Bridgeworld.  New school, new friends and new bullies.  On top of that, a new sport, Zegma.  I even liked how the bullies were wrote into the story.  Brandon and Starview Academy were keeping the story going with all the "mysteries".

Not so great: Some parts of it felt rushed.  I was not sure if Travis McBee was just hurrying to get to the next "adventure" or if he just wanted to "skip" the boring times at school.  Either way that was the only thing that I disliked.

I would be interested to see where Will's story goes next
