Half Way Home- You are grown in vats and raised to be colonists on a foreign planet. You must report back to the leader on Earth when you know if your planet is good or bad to live on. A, it is habitable and you live your lives working your planet. Or B, it is not habitable and you will be terminated along with your planet. This planet is on the verge of habitable and uninhabitable. You are born fifteen years premature and must learn to live without much of the necessary knowledge you should have learned. Out of five-hundred people only fifty remain alive. Welcome to your half way home.
One thing that I liked was the plot of the story. It had action and romance, both of which every good book should have. Maybe not every good book has it, but a lot of them do. I also liked the vinnies. I thought that they were very cool and I imagine them being very cute, somewhat like a hedgehog type thing. I was very sad when they ate them though, but they had to survive, so I understand.
I would definitely recommend this book to no one younger than middle school age because of the content. It talks about people being gay, which I don't think is a good subject for anyone younger than middle school.
I would compare this book to The Mazerunner because of the creatures. In The Mazerunner there were the grievers, which were weird creature things. In Half Way Home there are the vinnies and the beast that poops gold, which are also weird creature things.
