Jack Sullivan was just a normal kid with a crush when his whole world was set upside down. I really liked this book, though it did have some faults. Firstly for the faults, was the world building. I loved that the book plopped us into the middle of the action, but I wish that there was more explanation, such as where were all the other kids, and it seemed slightly convenient that people that affected Jack's life were there. I also wasn't sure what to think of June's character. She was kind of stereotypical, and Jack had talked about her so much I guess I was expecting...more from her character. However, I loved Jack and his best friends, and I loved how they incorporated all the monsters into the story so seamlessly. Jack had a unique voice, along with his best friend, Quint, and I thought that they portrayed their friendship as well as most guys friendships well (or at least, from my perspective of a girl). Overall, I really liked this book and would recommend it to people who are looking for an action based and fast moving plot book!
