Magisterium by Jeff Hirsch
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publish Date: Oct. 1, 2012
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
So there was this awful event that split the world in half and apparently half of it just...died.
Sixteen year old Glenn (a girl) lives on the surviving half with her dad. her mom disappeared across the Rift, the border between the two halves. Glenn's father is taken by the government because of an invention. Glenn and her friend Kevin run away. They decide to cross the Rift to escape, expecting a dead wasteland, but instead find a world of magic and secrets.
Glenn - seemed kind of dumb, maybe just naive? She started out good and went downhill.
Kevin - Glenn's friend and possible love interest. Annoying, changed too easily.
The scenes are very descriptive, but sometimes lacked detail about what was actually going on. I sometimes had to go back and reread as things were confusing and I thought I missed things.
