Polaris — A twist on the 1947 Roswell New Mexico UFO incident. middle grade science fiction

Bixie, Montana is in the middle of nowhere, not connected to any place, and not needed to get to any destination.

But one snowy evening, a lone visitor walking down an old country road changes thirteen-year-old Aaron Martin’s life forever. Aaron thinks he’s being a Good Samaritan by inviting the nearly frozen visitor into his home to warm up, but unbeknownst to Aaron, he’s initiated “The Game”.

A group of Elders, known as the Council of the Legend, come together from time to time to enjoy a rousing event they playfully call “The Game”. Now Aaron’s town is the playing board and he and his fellow townspeople are the players.

The rules are simple. Win. Because if Aaron loses, he won’t just lose his family. He’ll lose his very identity.

butterflyIf you like SciFi or gaming you will love Polaris. There are twists and turns at every corner. Just when you think you've figured it out there will be yet another interesting clue to guide you on this adventure through time and space.

butterflyReally enjoyed this book. The constant action, twists and turns will definitely hold the attention of the middle school reader. Especially enjoyed the twist at the end...wasn't expecting that. Having boys, I'm always looking for books they will read and enjoy. This is a great book for boys as well as girls.
