Alice has been acting weird for a while, ever since she started dating Ryan. There had been other disappearances in Manchester, but it isn't until Alice disappears that he feels compelled to do something. He *knows* it is his fault that she disappeared. Alice left him a cryptic note and made him promise that if the police asked about her, he would not tell them anything.
So when the police interrogate him, he doesn't tell them the truth. But his growing impatience turns to desperation. Preston and his friend Mace go to the Manchester Institute for Science and Technology (MIST), where he believes he will find answers about Alice. What they discover is bigger than the disappearance of their friend. This is no longer a personal quest to save a friend. It is a perilous endeavor to free a generation.
BTSYA / Teen Reader (Age 15):
Read this for fun and entertainment. The characters are unique and readers can relate to them which is something I like in a book. There is mystery everywhere, and plenty of suspense. The author makes it easy for the reader to feel that suspense, too. It definitely keeps you interested in reading more.
I recommend Lifers for all ages. I admit at the beginning can seem a little odd, but it is definitely worth reading
Full of suspense and thrilling. Teens and young adults who love science fiction, teleporting, and mystery will find themselves as invested Preston is in saving Alice.
There is some strong language.
Not quite a dystopian novel, this thriller is still a science fiction thriller.
This is a joy ride for action adventure lovers.
