The Walls Have Eyes (MG)

Dunkle, Clare B. 2009. The Walls Have Eyes. Simon & Schuster. 225 pages.

"She's melted down? Completely?"
"We couldn't save a single chip."

This one is a sequel to The Sky Inside. Martin Glass, our hero, is still on the run having escaped his suburb-in-a-dome-home. In the previous book, he found his sister, Cassie, whose life was in danger. Still is in danger, in fact. She's one of the Wonder Babies. And this model of child has been recalled by the government. But Martin will do anything--as will his dog-that's-not-a-dog, Chip--to save his sister. Even if it means making a big sacrifice.

I enjoyed this one. I don't know that I love, love, loved it as much as the first one. But I certainly found it an exciting read. It has danger and adventure and mystery.
It was a good choice for the Read-a-thon today.

The cover on this one looks kind of strange. I had to look at it a couple of times to see that it was a dog. I may be going cross-eyed :)

I hope that your reading is going well!
