Fern is on her way to Washington D.C. as a class trip when she has a vision of a boy trapped in a cage. She suspects he might be another of the Unusual 11, like her. Ferns get stuck rooming with her enemies Lee and Blythe, as well as the 10-year-old genius, Candace. This makes it more difficult for her to teleport to the boy and help him. What is the secret plot the man holding the boy has for both Fern and the boy Mile Zapo?
The book was pretty fun. It’s just that it didn’t seem like a YA book because Fern is 12 or 13, so maybe it like a middle-grade book. They are middle schoolers. I did like the new character, Candace the genius. She was always spurting random facts about stuff. I actually learned a lot of random stuff reading this book. Kogler is very creative. I read the first book and though her vampire idea was interesting.
I recommend that if you read this book, read the first book first: The Otherworldlies. If you like The Percy Jackson series, and different vampires, you will love this.
