While there were some nice ideas in this novel they were difficult to find beneath its ushed and undeveloped plot The uestors visit each of the three worlds in turn spending less than seventy pages in each Perhaps if each of these worlds had been fleshed out into a story in its own ight the book would have held my interest but instead it felt as though the author was just ushing through them at a breakneck pace stopping by so briefly that she did not have time to expand on her ather basic ideasThe early chapters of the novel were similarly weak "Lennon Gave No I "gave no i EDIT Reread as an adult uestors emains a three star but is no longer on my shelf Nowadays I am very uncomfortable with the handling of gender in the book Cam a child who supposedly won t have a gender until puberty could be ead as non binary but the characters and puberty could be ead as non binary but the characters and narrative keep eferring to Cam as it instead of using theythem or other pronouns It s disgusting and dehumanising like Cam can t be seen as fully human until they are either a boy or a girl I know uestors was published in 2007 but that s no excuse this strict binary codedivide you must be male or female so as to be treated as such according to socially constructed guidelines actual wording that s said in the book based on your genitalia and there are no other options and spectrums in sex and gender it is a eprehensible and dangerous message in a children s book It s transphobic to the extreme to boot And uestors thinks it s subverting gender olesIt s a shame because otherwise uestors is uite funny and witty with memorable and colourful characters But it is also largely underdeveloped Like there are hardly any scenes with the three uestor children Madlen Bryn and Cam and their Agent mother Kate Kate only had them as part of a grand master plan to bring "the three worlds of this book s universe back into balance "three worlds of this book s universe back into balance was her duty nothing How does she feel about all of this I don t have a clue She doesn t seem to care one way or the other There is nary a family bonding moment or an emotional touch between her and her children who might get killed on their uests it s a shafted blip on the adar We never even find out who the children s fathers areThe hero children who had emained ignorant of their destiny and of each other s existence at the beginning are forced on their uest far too uickly with no training no preparation no weapons and no briefing on any basic survival skills whatsoever They don t even have time to change their clothes A couple of chapters of exposition is all that s given Any ush in a story involving time travel is endered moot to begin with it completely negates the saying There s no time Hurry Yes there are a lot of time travel confusions and plot holes Plus incredibly stupid adult characters but maybe that was the point These are the least of the book s problems however The mental illness and autism ep in uestors is deeply troubling and problematic As in it s perceived in villainous or blameworthy characters Perhaps unintentionally it s viewed as dangerous and a threat to all civilisation Again 2007 no excuse % % thatThere are some typos as well Cam is eferred to as a her once Oops Better than it thoughIt s a little sad that some books from my childhood are turning out to be not. Three worlds held in perfect balance Nothing can change that Well nothing except a cataclysmic disruption in the Space Time Continuum Luckily the people in charge have a plan Create three perfect Heroes the best of each world and send them on a uest to find the Objects ,

Lot than I did A Wrinkle in Time another similar book There is a mysticism and winsome aspect to uestors that makes it endearing While I wouldn t "really call it a good book in terms of a well written and well structured story "call it a good book in terms of a well written and well structured story succeeds in having a spark that shines through the characters and creative settings At least it s never boring which saves it from the fade of mediocrityHardly anyone has ever heard of uestors I d say check it out if you have the time You might be surprisedFinal Score 35 I love Mrs Macmahonney The overall story was solid although the characters were a bit flat and the world building could have used a bit background but for a middle grade novel this was uite good In the universe in which Madlen Bryn and Cam live there are not one but three very different worlds and they each live in a different one Madlen lives in Trentor Bryn lives in Kir and Cam lives in Dalrodia One day progresses normally for all three of them until each kid is pulled out of school and taken to what is called The London House they ve never heard of it before and are told that they are elated What And barely before they have had a chance to digest this information they are told that there has been a disruption in the Space Time Continuum and that they must estore the balance WhatIt comes down to this The Council Members the people in charge had a plan to create one hero from each world and when the three of them became old enough send them on a uest to find the Objects of Power from each world in order to estore the balance With little than a good luck from everyone else the newly acuainted siblings are off on their uest to the three worldsOf the three worlds they visit Madlen s Trentor is probably the most similar to Earth although there are some very different aspects Bryn has dragons in his Kir in fact the dragons have their own civilization and View Humans As Inferior humans as inferior in Cam s Dalrodia the people in charge base every decision on what they dream at nightuestors is a good book full of cool ideas about different worlds and time travelnot to mention adventure as the kids try to survive while finding the uest items The world of Kir was my favorite because of the dragon civilization Readers will find themselves ooting for Madlen Bryn and Cam as they fight their way past enemies over worlds and through time while they try to find the three items that will estore the balance and save the universe I ecommend this book to someone who eally likes fantasy a lot In this book there are three worlds and each world is eally different from another It is eally fantasy because there are dragons and magical powers Fantasy is one of my favorite genres so I eally did enjoy eading this book It keeps my mind off eality and I was able to connect to the three main characters because they are both children just like me This "Book Is Really Different " is eally different other books because it shows that kids can also do great things and that they can be as powerful as adult Three kids were chosen from their planet to save the universe They were told that the universe was no longer in balance so it s their job to safe the universe At first I thought they were just kids they couldn t do anything but after eading it I learn that children are just the same as adult. That to fail would mean unthinkable disaster It's a pity then that someone is determined to stop them From the icebound city of the dragons to the magical kitchen of The London House Joan Lennon has crafter a highly inventive story that is fast paced fantastical and fun. .
