This book was so good! It is about a boy named Patrick, a boy with six siblings, with him right in the middle. Patrick loves science, and he did science experiments all the time. One day, when he was left alone in the house by accident, he makes a science experiment. Something weird happens, and Patrick got sent to a weird world named Ith. Here, he learns that Earth is in danger, and that he could either risk his life in saving Earth, or have Earth taken over by a man who works toward taking over Earth himself. I love this book so much, but I hate how there is a cliffhanger at the end, how there is a dead end ending. The author used great language in this great book of imagination. I encourage you to read this amazing book!
Patrick has always found it difficult to fit in, but he's never had to fit in with a whole different universe! When 12 year old Patrick Griffith is caught into another world, he must find his way through a new way of reading, government, and different names for everyday objects. In the meantime, while Patrick was transported into a new universe, some objects from other universes end up on Earth as well! As all three universes intertwine, it becomes clear that something is amiss. I personally loved Patrick's character, and he had a certain charm while still being sarcastic/sassy, and he wasn't washed out by the large cast of characters, plot lines, and universes. One criticism I would have is that on the world Patrick was transported too was slightly too different from Earth. I found it hard to follow at some points, and while the length of the book allowed for the necessary world building to occur, it dragged at some points as a result. In specific, when Ith changed the way that words were read, but yet had the same language, I found it slightly hard to believe. Overall, however, I found the world fascinating with intriguing characters and the author was able to balance the various plot lines very well!
