Silverbirch; A Tear in the Fabric of the Night Sky

Part I

By eating an extremely rare mushroom that has a red lightning bolt image naturally built-in to its black-gilled underbelly, Nudge discovers he can create a tear in the fabric of the night sky that will allow his soul to legally leave Earth and enter Silverbirch.

My Thoughts:
I've read a few books so far this year but this will officially be my first review book.  And what an awesome read it was!

Silverbirch wasn't like anything I'd read before.  It's short and quite a quick read but I managed to drag it out to savour it.  The beginning almost quite literally goes off with a bang and it starts with a very interesting first line.  Once I was through the very first page it's hard to stop reading.

Nudge is the main character in this book and it's his ninth birthday where everything begins.  Nudge, Hayley, Dieter, Chase and Zoe stumble across a mysterious box in an abandoned house that will forever change each of them.  From then on things get quite complicated for each character.

I found Silverbirch to be well written and kept me on the edge of my chair.  I was amazed at how well Rob Kaay linked different parts of the story and by the end you can see how each part fit in, and contributed to where they ended up.

I want to say so much more but at the same time I don't want to ruin it for others.  If you want a brilliantly written, fast paced and quick read.  Give this one a try.

Fave Line:  Sometimes you only have two seconds to make a decision, except in this case, someone else was making it for me.
