Blog Tour stop for this YA interactive Book and App launched in UK June 2019
" An innovative new immersive children’s reading experience – a book and augmented reality app that work together to create an entirely believable and compelling new universe "
According to the one teacher on Earth who believed in her, Emi hadn’t a chance.
The space academy of her dreams was more than a reach.
The Intergalactic Institute of Science and Technology (IGIST) hadn’t admitted an Earthling for decades.
The bygones left on Earth would lead a boring existence if, and only if, they were lucky enough to evade the plague.
Emi always thought she was different, not because her only friend growing up in Rockland was a drone named Sadee, but because she was very determined to become a revered scientist like her late mother.
But even a passion for science and good old-fashioned grit could not prepare Emi for the challenges that await in a wide, strange galaxy under the auspices of the Star League.
When this book came up for review I could not wait to offer to take part! I just knew from the blurb and the fantastic information to do with the App and how interactive the books was that my 3 boys the mini twists wuld love taking this book for a spin.
The story is really good a good middle of the line read for younger readers (no bad language or sexual content) and more advanced YA readers alike (lots of advance words and explanations)
The world created in IGIST is great fun kind of reminded me of a high school read but in space and the illusive IGIST Space academy gave some level of Hogwarts vibes
The accompanying AR app turn the black and white illustrations into moving, colourful images on your phone or tablet my mini twist boys just loved this feature especially all the badges and things you can collect! Overall, This book was a big hit in our household and my boys are looking forward to future books in this series!
