What's it like to see your best friend turn into a bird?
What's it like to be next?
White knuckle intensity
Definetly an interesting read, and a quick one at that, too. The ending is anti-climatic to me, though..but all in all, the book as a who9le was an interesting journey :)
This book is good. It's very suspenseful and interesting.
This is a great story about science gone awry and the teens that are fighting for their lives.
If you had the chance, would you want to become a bird? A fish? A cat? A snake?
Captive of the mad scientist Dr Franklin, and his sniveling assistant Dr Skinner, three castaway children learn that they are about to become to first human/animal hybrids, whether they want the dubious honor or not.
A gripping plot with engaging characters, this story really gets into the mind of Semi and Miranda, not only when they are fighting to survive as castaways, but also throughout the entire process of Dr Franklin's experiments. The descriptions are fascinating and the plot is suspenseful.
It is a good thing this book is a fast read, because I simply could not put it down. :D
I read this book for a high school biology class. This is more of a Teen book, but older adults may enjoy the story as well.
