Synopsis:

Britain 2099. All human diseases have been eradicated by genetic cleansing, but there are still people who are 'unclean' and locked away in institutions. Travis is one of them, until one day Dr Alexander helps him to escape to a world where nothing makes sense. Travis has powerful seizures which take him and his new friend Demi on a quest through time to seek and destroy Chase, the man he hates. Along the way he has to deal with shocks, surprises, traumas, and death, until at last he ends up on a beach, where his fate will finally be decided.

In the rush of trying to get away from the android guards, Travis and his friends in the Rockets were hiding out when suddenly everything went black. Discovering that is was an epileptic seizure was a surprise. In the year 2099, most all of the illnesses and diseases have been eradicated. Anyone found sick is shipped off to institutions that resembles a prison. Being placed in Number Forty Institution, Travis quickly became acquainted with the new rules and Emmett Hudson. The offer from Dr. Alexander to help him escape was an interesting prospect. Finding that it was through a time portal that his epileptic seizures created made the whole prospect more fantasy than reality to him. Traveling back in time changed his mind, appearing in the year 2009 and meeting Demi Fraser on the isle of Barrasay and then just as suddenly jumping ahead again to 2010, and then 2014. The experiences in the past soon makes him realize how much he doesn’t belong there, he really only belongs in his own time, in his ‘corrugated city’ with the Rockets, now how to get back.


What an interesting concept of a futuristic world. The story was fairly easy to follow even with all it’s twists and the adventure was really creative. Really enjoyed the concept, Travis, Hudson, and Demi where good characters, I just had a difficult time getting into the story. It was written from the point of view of Travis and the simplicity of the story telling made it easy but that may also have something to do with why I had difficulty becoming more emotionally invested in the characters. I would put this in the category of young adult because of the easy writing style as well as the teenage characters. This is not the first work by Tracey Morait, wonder now if all the books have the same simplistic writing style. I would read another of this authors books, but only if I am in the right mood.
