The main character, Itch, is a fourteen year old kid. He's lost. He's socially awkward. Needless to say he's relatable for a lot of us, especially the younger generation.
There was loads of action, but there was also a lot of description that came with it.
It kept my attention, but I honestly don't know if it would keep a younger kid's attention.
The ending was satisfying enough, but there is plenty of room for a sequel. One that I'll probably read, but I'm not stalking the author's website or anything for.
Thrills. Danger. And world domination. Itch is as action-packed and suspenseful as a middle-grade novel can get!
Fourteen-year-old Itchingham Lofte, nicknamed Itch, has an unusual passion: collecting specimens of every element in the periodic table. So what if that means he's had a few ... mishaps? But when he gets his hands on a suspiciously warm rock made of a new, previously unknown element, things really begin to explode. Soon, a malevolent teacher, an evil-doing corporation, and a top-secret government agency are all after Itch. Can his science know-how keep him one step ahead of everyone...and help him stay alive?
