#BookReview of The Fog Diver by Joel Ross


The Fog Diver (The Fog Diver, #1)
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: HarperCollins
Recommended Age: Childrens
Genre: Steampunk, Adventure
About the Book: A deadly white mist has cloaked the earth for hundreds of years. Humanity clings to the highest mountain peaks, where the wealthy Five Families rule over the teeming lower slopes and rambling junkyards. As the ruthless Lord Kodoc patrols the skies to enforce order, thirteen-year-old Chess and his crew scavenge in the Fog-shrouded ruins for anything they can sell to survive.

Hazel is the captain of their salvage raft: bold and daring. Swedish is the pilot: suspicious and strong. Bea is the mechanic: cheerful and brilliant. And Chess is the tetherboy: quiet and quick…and tougher than he looks. But Chess has a secret, one he’s kept hidden his whole life. One that Lord Kodoc is desperate to exploit for his own evil plans. And even as Chess unearths the crew’s biggest treasure ever, they are running out of time...

Do I Recommend this book? Oh yes!

Notes and Opinions: I didn't know what to expect from this book but I loved it! The book has a LOT of information in the beginning and it seemed a little slow but totally worth it! I thought the most of the book would be spent in the fog but honestly it doesn't. It's mostly spent with them flying around on their air-raft. I liked the diversity of the characters and how each of them was so unique. This has to be the most interesting middle grade book I've ever read!
