Earth is not safe as long as Rex Abraham is on it. He has invented a virus that kills everybody over the age of 3 and has tested it out on the world called Ith. Patrick Griffin has just woken up in this other world and has been told he is to save the people of earth and Ith. But he thinks he is dreaming. It has to be a dream because he is only 12. How is a twelve-year-old going to save the world? Well, according to a real griffin that he meets on Ith, Patrick needs to figure out if it is all a dream or if he really can help the people of Ith and earth by stopping Rex’s evil plan.
This book really was not all that great. It was pretty boring until it got to the end when I felt like I finally actually wanted to read more. It was also confusing trying to keep all of the new vocabulary straight since it was set on another world. Even though I did not like this book, I think there is a teenage boy out there who would like to read it and think it is cool.
