"An intriguing story of adventure, recommended. It's all fun and games until you
realize the reality of it. The Intruders tells the story of six Bronx teens flung into a
future war where they use their knowledge of the subways to win a war where
the surface of the Bronx has once again become a forest. Initially enjoying their
new found importance, they soon realize war is no game."
-Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
The Intruders is a fascinating, thought-provoking, teen novel. All the obvious
issues are addressed, and there’s a powerful longing for peace and acceptance
beautifully portrayed. Dialog is convincing, relationships very true-to-life,
emotions mixed and genuine, and the story’s intriguing and fun.
-Sheila Deeth, The Writers Network
Before I started reading this book, I thought that it was only for middle school or
high school aged boy. The plot, based on a young urban teen would be enough
to draw any boy that age in. Right away your are thrown into the adventure, and
caught a little off guard by the details of the story. Every page has a new surprise
but the part I loved best was the heartfelt moment where the main character
struggles with showing his true emotions and being a leader to his peers. That
was when I realized that this book is suitable for any age, as it reflects all of our
inner struggles in everyday life. A great read!
I am going to be 60 and I loved The Intruders. Are you planning a sequel? I was
a psychology major with a concentration in children’s' literature and I love teen
books. I really enjoyed this book.
