My Rating: 4 stars
My Recommendation: High
This charming fast pace read, that is an updated version of the old, cat chase mouse, trope.
We have Simon, the spoil rich k kid, that I didn't really like at first, but as the story when on, and you got to know him more, he wasn't that big of jerk. He showed so real note worthy qualities, especially when Kat started to push him away. I like how he didn't just accepted it, or turn on her for it. No, he manned up and got to the bottom of it. I won't go to anymore about the plot, because that will spoil the story.
Lets move on
I love the world building, the rich detail and the pacing. As I said that is a fast pace read, but it's done int a way were you don't feeling like the Author's skipped things. I find that's a common problem with fast pace books. Otherworld managed to tie up most of it loose ends, but left some free to carry on towards the sequel. And I will be reading that one as well. I'm stacking this on my, (got to have all all the books) shelf.
Overall, I loved this book, true it is YA, and it has some of those YA cliché's, but the writing is capturing and the plot is a steady flow of excitement that keeps you hooked. It's a near perfect mix of fantasy and sci-fi, and it really bring somethings into light about our current obsession with technology. So take my high recommendation that you will not only enjoy this read, but fall head over heals.

New York Times bestselling author Jason Segel used to have nightmares just like Charlie, and just like Charlie, he's learned that the things we're most afraid of are the things that can make us strong...if we're brave enough to face them. Jason likes acting, writing, making music, and hanging out with his friends. Sometimes he writes movies. Sometimes he writes songs for movies. Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from The Muppets and Despicable Me. Your parents might know him from other stuff. Nightmares! is his first novel.
I write books.
Some of my books are what librarians call middle grade. (Kiki Strike, Nightmares!)
Some should be kept away from small children and people with weak stomachs. (How to Lead a Life of Crime, The Eternal Ones, Otherworld)
I write some books with Jason Segel. I've written quite a few books on my own. I'm an Aquarius.
My favorite food is cauliflower. (No joke.) I will eat almost anything. And I'm weirdly proud of it.
I believe New York City is the most magical place on earth. I love Dolly Parton and David Attenborough. Equally.
I cannot sing or play any musical instruments. I'm obsessed with sewers and sanitation systems.
I once broke into a Mayan temple with my brother, Spike. Spike is an alias. It's not his real name.
I also have a sister. She prefers to remain anonymous. We have the same birthday. Yes, that sucks.
I think that's all you need to know.
