Worlds Apart by James Riley - OPTIONAL

Riley, James Worlds Apart (Story Thieves #5), 479 pages.  Aladdin (Simon), 2018.  $18. Content: PG (some fighting)

Nobody has torn the fictional and non-fictional worlds apart, leaving Owen and all other nonfictionals without any imagination, a splitting Brittany into her two selves.  Fictional Brittany is reveling in being free from nonfictional Brittany’s caution, but she is losing her battle against nobody’s machinations.  Nobody has a sinister plan to take control of both worlds once and forever.  Owen and Brittany will need every one of their friends and foes to defeat the master plot and save both worlds.

Personally, I lost interest after book three as the plots became cluttered with characters and ever convoluted.  Kids, of course, will want to read to the end.  Heavy on exciting action, but short on character development.
