    One Reply to “In Over Their Heads”

    1. There's no good way to write a review of this without multiple spoilers. Anything I say about this is going to give away things about the first book. This wasn't my personal favorite, but it's a good choice for readers who still want dystopian books, or fans or McKissack's The Clone Codes. Since Haddix lives in the area, I'll have to buy a copy. I could have done without Lida Mae. It was the perfectly correct "you'uns" that drove me over the edge with her!

    2. Of course, the first book in a series is usually best but this seemed like a worse than average follow-up. I was still glad to know what happened.

    3. First sentence: The warning alarm woke Lida Mae from the deepest of sleep. Premise/plot: In Over Their Heads is the sequel to Margaret Peterson Haddix' Under Their Skin. Both books are science fiction for the middle grade audience. In the first book, readers met Nick and Eryn, our hero and heroine who made a shocking discovery about the world they live in. In the second book, the adventure continues. Instead of being told solely from Nick and Eryn's perspective, however, the narrative expands to [...]

    4. In this sequel to Under Their Skin, the families find themselves camping out in a remote forest where they can't be found. With the help of a new friend will they be able to make things right again? Filled with giant plot twists and unpleasant surprises, this book will not let you put it down. In the ultimate battle between human and robot, the next generation of humans will fight for their family and solidarity. It is a n amazing book, and will definitely serve your book cravings.

    5. It feels like I have been waiting for this book for forever. I tried to hold off on reading the first book until this one was out, but that failed, and the waiting began. I finally managed to get my hands on a library copy of this book. It definitely lived up to my expectations.This was an easy and fast read that left me wanting more. This time around you get to read some chapters from Ava and Jackson's perspectives. I absolutely loved Ava's perspective. Margret Peterson Haddix manages to make h [...]

    6. Haddix, Margaret In Over Their Heads, 307 pages. Simon & Schuster, 2017. $17. Content: G (tense moments)Nick and Eryn (humans) have met their step-siblings Ava and Jackson, robots. And they have found the secret history and instruction inside Mammoth Cave. Right away, things start going wrong. Jackson goes haywire and needs new parts, so he goes with his Dad to town. Dad gets reconnected to the robot net and learns terrible news. Back at the cave, a young stranger turns up who gives the grou [...]

    7. I didn't quite like this as much as the first book, but I think that's because I'm an adult, not the age it was intended for. I would probably give it a 3, but rated it 4 stars in looking at it from the perspective of its intended audience. And also because it takes place in Mammoth Cave, which is in my home state.This continues the story of Under Their Skin, in which Eryn and Nick made the shocking discovery that all the adults and older children in the world are really sophisticated robots, in [...]

    8. Perhaps not quite as gripping and compelling as Under Their Skin (the first book in this two book series), but still quite good. A pretty fast read, and a fast paced story, as well. Though provoking, imaginative, and exciting. Some of the scenarios seemed a bit too far fetched, and some of the situations were resolved too quickly and easily, but, overall, a satisfying tale. Margaret Peterson Haddix weaves a good yarn, and she hasn't lost her touch.

    9. Was not as well done as I would have expected. Under Their Skin was captivating, this sequel lacked in depth and a little boring in parts. Will be interested to see what my tween book discussion group thinks.

    10. I love her fascinating ideas that are so relevant. I think the ending was confusing but interesting. I love her characters. They seem very real. Conclusion seemed a little rushed and “they all lived happily ever afterish”.

    11. Definitely a YA book. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one because the ending is pretty lame and the whole plot could have been filled out quite a bit. I would have liked this more with some more depth & background. But still a quick, enjoyable YA read.

    12. Part 2 kept me interested, wanting to know what was next. Not sure how I feel about the ending. Will there be a part 3? Feels incomplete.

    13. Uneven and hard to follow, I read it without realizing it was the second in a series. Perhaps it needs the first?

    14. The duology ends in a rather rushed fashion, but most of the book is a page turner. It kept me guessing, and I think kids will enjoy it.

    15. Second book in series and last. Nice to have all the unknowns cleared up. Robots and humans living together, love it.

    16. I liked this book because their on a quest to save humanity and robots. You might like this if you like science fiction. Eryn and Nick find this stack of papers with the instructions to destroy the very robots that raised them and so much others. With their illegal brother and sister because they grow up they have to save the very existence of everyone. They have to trust each other to defeat the evil robots that already put the robots and the humans to extinction once.
