The Marbury Lens by Andrew Smith
Review by Rebecca, Windsor Branch
After escaping abduction by a stranger, 16 year old Jack visits London, where he gains access to an alternate reality via a pair of special glasses.
Why I picked it up: The cover piqued my interest, and the book summary convinced me to read it.
Why I finished it: I was dying to find out whether the world of Marbury was real, or just a hallucination.
I'd recommend it to: Anyone who enjoys considering the nature of reality, and who likes a good story. The descriptions in the book were fantastic.
