As soon as my ten year old saw the advertisement for Bounders by Monica Tesler on the back of “Boys Life Magazine,” he wanted to read it. Here’s my fifth grader’s review:
Bounders is an intriguing middle grade Sci-Fi book with twists and turns at every corner. The main plot is that children are being bred to “bound.” Bounding is basically teleporting anywhere they want–even planets. Life sounds good, or so it seems, until some of the bounders make a strange discovery.
Probably anyone from nine to fourteen would enjoy Bounders. It might be too hard for third graders, unless they were advanced third graders. This was a really good book and I would rate it five stars.
