Nowhere On Earth | Nick Lake | Unexpected Twists & Unlike Any YA I’ve Read Before

Though it hasn’t been long since I last published a book review, it feels like ages since I have sat down to write one. I picked up ‘Nowhere On Earth’ from the library because I really wanted to read light contemporary. We shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but my first impressions of this book was that it would be a standard YA. It did start off like that but in the middle there was an important, and unexpected announcement (or at least near the middle as I remember it) but I can’t give spoilers! I can only recommend that you should read it.

Title: Nowhere On Earth

Author: Nick Lake

Publisher: Hodder

Number Of Pages: 340

My Rating: 4/5 stars

Throughout the book I was enjoying Nick Lake’s style of writing. There was description present but it was cleverly masked by the intriguing plot. When I book has heavy description it tends to take me a very long time to read it. Whereas I flicked through the novel in a couple of days! The plot wasn’t hard to follow, and you don’t need to read this book my any means. However it is a good book to get you out of a slump, and it’s different to anything I’ve read before in the YA section!

The main message in this book is shown through the brother-sister relationship. Other than the obvious To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series, it is rare to find such prominent sibling affection in a young adult book. For those of you that do like a bit of romance, I’m sorry but this book doesn’t have it. I quite liked that element of it though! 

Synopsis

It starts with a plane crash.

There are survivors: a teenage girl and her little brother. They are running from something. But what?

Then the men arrive. They are hunting the girl and boy. And-

And that’s all we can tell you…

Overall, Nowhere On Earth is an easy read. It has interesting themes and is very unlike anything I’ve read before! 

Have you heard of this book before? What book will always get you out of a reading slump?
