Great book review

Share it Please

This book. Oh my. I am almost half way through it and it's amazing.
Looking at the cover, I was dreading reading it. It looked so much like a 'typical' boy book, with a grey and bland-looking hover car digitally drawn on the front cover. No cover art, sparkles, swirls or nice color coordination. But, thanks to some friends who told me I just HAD to read it, I did just that.
And I just finished reading. At 5:30pm I decided to take a break, after a full day of non-stop reading.

Here's the blurb:

Meet Jason Chaser, hover car racer. He's won himself a place at the International Race School, where racers either make it on to the Pro Circuit - or they crash and burn. But he's an outsider. He's younger than the other racers. His car, the Argonaut, is older. And on top of that, someone doesn't want him to succeed at the School and will do anything to stop him. Now, Jason Chaser isn't just fighting for his place on the starting line, he's racing for his life.

Some comments that people have made for this book:

"THE FASTEST BOOK YOU'LL EVER READ" SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
"HIGH-OCTANE HARRY POTTER" THE AGE
"EXHILARATING... FAST-ACTION FICTION" CANBERRA TIMES
"FAST AND FURIOUS" BRISBANE NEWS

And, you know what, I have to agree with all of them. Yes, it does have quite a few similarities to Harry Potter. No, it is not magical. But, Jason is chosen for the school although he thought he had no chances. He excels, becomes famous. He beats the 'mean and evil villains'.

Go ahead gals, read it for yourselves - despite your better judgement!
