The Boy From Reactor 4 was an excellent surprise. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. It sweeps you in with a touch of espionage, danger, and action.
The story opens up in an unassuming way. We get introduced to Aagayuk Kungenook, supposedly from the northwest coast of Alaska. His given English name is Bobby. He is a hockey phenomenon that is speed on skates. He comes from nowhere and astounds everyone, but that is only part of the story.
The author takes the reader on a trip back in time to find out where Bobby came from and believe me this is a story where things aren't always as they appear. The reader is taken through plot twists and turns all the way through to the end, and the ending will take you by surprise.
Nadia’s memories of her father are not happy ones. An angry, secretive man, he died when she was thirteen, leaving his past shrouded in mystery. When a stranger claims to have known her father during his early years in Eastern Europe, she agrees to meet—only to watch the man shot dead on a city sidewalk. With his last breath, he whispers a cryptic clue, one that will propel Nadia on a high-stakes treasure hunt from New York to her ancestral homeland of Ukraine. There she meets an unlikely ally: Adam, a teenage hockey prodigy who honed his skills on the abandoned cooling ponds of Chernobyl. Physically and emotionally scarred by radiation syndrome, Adam possesses a secret that could change the world—if she can keep him alive long enough to do it. A twisting tale of greed, secrets, and lies, The Boy from Reactor 4 will keep readers guessing until the final heart-stopping page.
