July 29: The Search for Wond-La

I had read all my childhood books aloud already. I asked Sophia's teacher for recommendations for bedtime reading. She gave me a list copied from the internet most likely, but I took it anyway. This was one of them--a book I never would have picked up on my own (dystopian scifi fantasy? Nope).

The story of Eva Nine, a child raised by a robot in an underground facility waiting for earth to be inhabitable again. And then the facility is attacked and she is on her own.

It's a hero's journey. But the hero's a girl and I like it when that happens. And she gets help from aliens and bugs and things like that but not from a love interest who saves the day. It's good like that.


  1. Sounds like something I would have liked to read with the boys.

  2. That sounds good. I definitely like girl heroes.

  3. Not from the love interest. Excellent.

  4. I think I have heard of that author.
