A Book I Recommend
I found 'Escape from Time' by Andy Treen very exciting and I really (1) enjoyed reading it. It's a story (2) about a boy called Troy who goes on a journey to (3) look for his friend Zyra. It wasn't what I had expected, although I am interested (4) in science fiction. I thought this story would be like films I had seen, but I (5) realized after a few pages that it was (6) more interesting than a film.
Troy goes to many places and times. He (7) shares his knowledge with different (8) kinds of people and learns new skills from them. Then he moves on. The last part of the book (9) describes the meeting between Troy and Zyra when they are both caught by some space criminals from the future. But that's enough information from me (10) because I don't want to spoil it for you. It's really quite (11 ) funny too, with some excellent jokes about time travel in it.
