You know the ones I mean; the recommendations from fellow authors about why you should pick up a copy of the book in question.

This cover would appeal to boys and any girls looking for an action adventure story. A star running back on the firestormm team, Jack barely has time to savor a victory before his father whisks him away, warning him that everything the teen believes is a lie.


I’ve seen it before and even read some. My mother isn’t my mother. Firestorm on the other hand? Now completely defeated and alone. Does the author really think the toy poodle evolved that way to better cope with its environment? But it’s a good read for anyone interested in the plot. Reviewed by Me for TeensReadToo.

And then there is the plot. But if you can stomach this can’t believe I’m saying this plot you probably should know of the books style. Hardly a “the” in the entire book: Think pace is determined by sentence length?

There were twists, but you had a good idea of them before they happened. I saw little to know interesting plot devices. Overall, a poor understanding of science and technology is shown, which dilutes the message of the book well, and the ending where the deus ex machina saves the oceans without going into details.

My favorite character was the dog. It depends on the type of person to decide whether or not they should read Firestorm by David Klass. He soon learns that he was sent back from the future in order to stop the world from making terrible environmental mistakes that humans will pay for dearly in the future. Klass portrays Jack as a kid with a lot of depth. With the help of klas “friends” he strives to complete his destiny while he fights off the Dark Army that has come to stop him.
