The last 13 (#11) by James Phelan
Published by Scholastic Australia
Australian Author James Phelan, continues his hit series “The last 13” closer to home, featuring scenes from down under. The dreamers are once again in pursuit of the gear, this time in the Australian Outback, as they race for the dream gate. This book is packed with all that we have come to enjoy from this series- dreams, cool gadgets, multiple enemies, and easy to relate to characters and strong friendships.
This is the 11th book in Phelan’s series, firmly placed for the YA, action and adventure lovers. Phelan has teamed up with Scholastic Australia to produce a thoroughly modern series. It also has the added advantage of hooking the most reluctant teen readers into a continuous reading habit as there are 13 books in the series, with a new one being released each month. They are short and punchy, as well as suspenseful, always leaving the reader keen to rush out and read the next book. This is amplified by the application of simple language, as well special online content, including a count-down clock to the next book.
The end is approaching, but it hasn’t ended yet! We wait with baited breath for the November instalment of this gripping series.
