A character that I was happy to see make a return appearance from the first book is Otto, the gentle water-bear that Eva can communicate with telepathically. DiTerlizzi has created a fully imagined future with an Earth that is unrecognizable from the Earth we currently inhabit. Littered with the remains of our great cities, it is now home to scores of alien creatures. He has also created a wonderful introduction to science fiction for young readers. They are truly stunning and help bring his fantastic adventure to life. This is a great read, one that I had a hard time putting down.

Sadly, I'm still grounded from reading until I finish school my mom's punishments may seem odd at times, but she sure knows what ways to torture me. I keep staring woefully at the cover. Don't tell my mom, but I got in 5 chapters before she came home from my brother's rehearsal. She was not in a good mood from all that bay bridge traffic.
It reminded me of why I don't read much science fiction; there's usually some 'other power' that really messes up a good story. I knew it was coming, but I really hoped it would be something like the force instead of an entity.
I perfectly understand that Mr. DiTerlizzi was trying to convey the inner changes that Eva went through, but as Rovee said in the previous book, "Honor yourself. What I don't understand was why he had to do it. Yes, the main character should be changing throughout the story, but in this book I think Mr. DiTerlizzi may have lost sight of what needed to be confirmed throughout the book.
Eva was looking for her WondLa, her home. And though she had found it with Muthr, Rovender Kitt, and Otto before without thoughtfully realizing it , she kept trying to fit in with others and find her WondLa no matter what because she never knew she had it. With this I found that Eva was too self conscious, too stubborn , and easy to manipulate that I couldn't believe in this story anymore. I would have given this an even smaller score I have truth, but lack in mercy because of the negatives I saw in Eva 8 maybe just a messed up family? Rovender; because of a past conflict solved. Read the book.
Hailey; because of the way he changed.
It wasn't his outside, or a steep inside, but a steady turnaround to his lovable side. A part of him that we weren't able to see in the beginning. Well, read it, see if you like it.
I hope those subtle hints I thought I saw weren't hinting at an illuminati story I pray not View all 5 comments. Mar 08, DavidO rated it it was amazing Shelves: fof-faves , favorites , 4-orstars. Why I liked this book so much: The world building. Despite the story taking entirely in place on Earth, it felt like a completely new world.
In the first book of the series we learned there was a biological collapse on Earth which left few things alive.

However the bacteria managed to survive, and these have evolved into huge forms which dominate the landscape. There are also a few human survivors, a human city, and several groups of aliens living on the planet. There are about 20 Why I liked this book so much: The world building.
There are about 20 pictures in this novel. I'm a whore for books with pictures in them, such as Sanderson's Stormlight Archives. Also, I found the main character quite likable, and her companions each had their own distinct and interesting personalities. The plot also moves at a good clip, neither too fast nor too slow. There's not really much more I look for in a book than those 4 things. Dec 04, Madeline O'Rourke rated it really liked it Shelves: unhauled. As much as Second Book Syndrome is definitely a common thing, one thing I value about second books is how they expand the world of the series, and A Hero for WondLa is no different.
I'm so into this world DiTerlizzi has created. I don't want to get spoilery, but it's interesting and unique; I love the premise of how the world came to be; I love the creatures; I love the interactions between the world and its denizens.

Really, I don't think this series' plot is anything special and it's trajectory is certainly along a well-worn path. But even so, I'm more than content with a vaguely familiar storyline because it is set in such a fantastic world. For me, the quality of the setting and the characters completely eclipses the need for a radically unique plot. And really, the quality of the setting and characters is high. DiTerlizzi evidently has a clear idea of this world. It's part of what I love about sci-fi; that DiTerlizzi could create this world, one that is unique and interesting, but also could be real.
For that reason, I didn't love the slightly more fantastical twist later on in this instalment, but it's I'm not too bothered. As for the characters, I love them more and more. They're well-developed and very distinct. And I love the burgeoning father-daughter dynamic between Rovender and Eva. Because the series is heavier on the setting and characters than the plot, it's made for greater depth than I had initially anticipated from this, a middle grade sci-fi series.
Like, a lot , for the second book in a middle grade series. But it's not shied away from or glossed over, and DiTerlizzi actually uses it really well to present the processes of death and grief to a younger audience. It's invaluable.

And as much as I will always enjoy found family dynamics, I particularly appreciate it here given the target audience. I think it's important for kids to understand the differences between blood and family and love and through Rovender, DiTerlizzi frequently reiterates the idea of focusing on actions, not words. So this may not be the most exciting series for an adult, plot-wise, but it is exciting for me to see such well-developed stories targeted at younger audiences.
Often children's and middle grade books exploring these topics do so overtly, but there's a lot of power in subtlety, too. Between the development of the characters and world, and the emotional depth, A Hero for WondLa is a quality novel. Mar 11, evelina rated it it was ok. The reason behind the low rating is mostly that it took me almost 2 months to read it.
If it takes me more than a month to read a book something about it must be bad. I just didn't get into it and I never wanted to sit down and read because I wasn't interested in what would happen. However, I believe that I would have enjoyed it more if I read it another time because I don't think I was in the right mood for this now. I love many things about this, the illustrations, the universe and the The reason behind the low rating is mostly that it took me almost 2 months to read it.
I love many things about this, the illustrations, the universe and the "creatures". I just don't really like Eva as the protagonist. I'm annoyed by her being "different from everyone else" and such a "good person" all the time. Jun 24, Betty-Ann rated it it was amazing Shelves: fantasy , science-fiction. I was SO excited to pick up this book! I had read the first of the series called The Search for WondLa last fall and was eagerly awaiting the sequel. And it did not disappoint! When Besteel destroyed their home and they had to survive above ground, Eva Nine was thrown into a world that she was not prepared for.
All of the training and tasks that she performed I was SO excited to pick up this book!
All of the training and tasks that she performed in the sanctuary were for a world long gone. Now the world was full of strange and alien life forms, both animal and plant. At the end of Book One, Eva Nine lost her Muthr but has two loyal alien friends, Rovender and Otto, and they have taken her to a place where a ship will take her to a human city, her WondLa. Book Two picks right up where Book One ends.
Eva Nine is standing in the ruins of old New York City waiting for Hailey, the human boy, to finish repairing his ship so he can take her to New Attica, the human city. But when she gets there, life is not what she expects. Cadmus Pryde, has created a city that he controls ruthlessly. Everyone, even though they are human, act like robots with Cadmus telling them where to live, how to live and what to do. Eva Nine does find Eva Eight, her sister, who has been waiting for her but she also discovers that Cadmus does not want any aliens living in the city.
She discovers that Cadmus wants to destroy all alien life forms and take control of all of Orbana.
