Spartanica is an awesome book that is chock-full of suspense and action. I never wanted to put it down. It was very creative in a way that was lifelike in parts. The author, Powers Molinar, made the characters very likable. A part in the book that I really enjoyed was when Ty was dreaming his Aunt Andi was making chocolate crepes and bacon for breakfast when he was actually asleep in the woods. A part I didn't like about the book was that each chapter switched between the perspectives of three people, which made it confusing. But it wasn't so confusing that I couldn't understand it; it made me pay more attention to each chapter. This book was so great it left me eagerly anticipating book two. I would recommend this book to ages eleven through eighteen.
