A Hero for Wondla
Author: Tony DiTerlizzi
Rating: 5 stars of happy amazing awesomeness!!!
Summary: Before the end of The Search for WondLa, Eva Nine had never seen another human, but after a human boy named Hailey rescues her along with her companions, she couldn’t be happier. Eva thinks she has everything she’s ever dreamed of, especially when Hailey brings her and her friends to the colony of New Attica, where humans of all shapes and sizes live in apparent peace and harmony. But all is not idyllic in New Attica, and Eva Nine soon realizes that something sinister is going on—and if she doesn’t stop it, it could mean the end of everything and everyone on planet Orbona.
Review: I fell in love with the first book, and it happened all over again with A Hero for Wondla. The world of Orbona is amazing: a perfect mix of fantasy and futuristic. From the aliens, to New Attica, to Eva Nine herself, I could not put this book down! The artwork was, as in the first book, absolutely fantastic, and pulled me even deeper into the story. Also, there are several very good life lessons in the book, and life lessons are difficult to come by in YA fiction these days. I hope this series goes on for many books, because I can't imagine having to finish one and realize that it was the last one. The Wondla series is not to be missed!
