Title: Has Anyone Seen My Brain?
Author: Dan Nimak
Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel
Reading Level: Children, Teen
Content: PG (mild action, suspense, adult situations, mischief)
This was a delightful and surprising story. The premise enticed me from the start but seeing how it all unfolded was entertaining. It’s a very touching story with a coming-of-age significance and a “It’s a Wonderful Life” impact. When I started the story, it seemed all too simple, but it became pleasantly complex soon enough.
I do feel that this is best for a much younger reader. I think there is a certain level of enjoyment lost that, unfortunately is only inferred, once full maturity and the truths of life have set in. If I’d read this as a 10 – 13-year-old, I think it would have blown my mind. There were some issues that seemed juvenile, but then it is a story for and about kids. Still, overall it’s a very sophisticated and clever story.
There were a few sci-fi elements involving invisibility, space travel, and time travel that I wish had been better explained, but that’s only because I tend to overthink things.
This was an enjoyable read. I’m recommending it to all my teacher friends who like sci-fi and any preteens I think might like it.
