It’s been a while since I have read a MG (middle grade) novel, though Emily Golus’ debut, Escape to Vindor, certainly makes me want to remedy this.
I’m quite certain that if I had not been really sick with all the congestion, I totally would have cried at the end of this book. I was so sad when the story ended!
Though I was unsure how things would end and what would happen, it was perfect on so many levels. I was greatly touched by the overall message and it greatly encouraged me. I, too, want to look at the stars and remember. <3
Escape to Vindor also had an incredible world, people, and cultures! Truly, it was phenomenal and would have loved a map to get a better feel of the places each person is from (thankfully she has this epic interactive website of Vindor), but even with that said, there was no confusion on who is who. In fact, I would love to meet all of them and experience their world close up. 😉
However, I want to go back to one of the messages this story. I won’t go into detail, but when Doctor Resh tells Megan this quote below, I couldn’t help but think of my relationship with Jesus. No way could I live without His light in my life.
To say the least, Megan’s story is definitely a touching, eye-opening, and fun one!
