The Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman

This book was pretty good. It reminded me a bit too much of The Giver, which I had just read for school. Otherwise, it was a great book. I love the genre, the plot, and the writing. The Other Side of the Island is about a girl named Honor. Honor and her family do not fit in with the rest of the town and they all know it. One day, Honor knows that they have gone too far, and suddenly, her parents disappear. Disappearing is another way of saying that her parents were taken by the corporation because they did not fit in. Honor and her brother are now orphans, but they know their parents are out there somewhere and they have to find them…

I recommend this book for grades: 5th-7th
