Truly inspired book, I not only enjoyed the character development, but the drive for Eva Nine to keep going. Not giving up was her specialty! I appreciated the authors true passion for science fiction, and look forward to more of Tony's work

A great book. It'll make more sense if you read the 1st one before.

I LOVE the Wondla Series, even though I've only read the first one. I think this is a adventurous and thrilling book for kids 9 and older.

A Hero for WondLa is an awesome sequel to The Search for WondLa. It it brings key answers to some important things from the first book such how Eva came to have the “WondLa” scrap in the first book and Arius’s statement that Eva had family.

It brings brand new characters with a returning appearance of Otto, Eva’s Halcyonus friends and Arius.

You also get to know a lot more about Hailey, the boy pilot who appears to pick Eva and Rovender up at the end of book one.

The book is set for children but teen and adult readers who read the first book will enjoy this aswell.

I read The Search for WondLa a couple years ago in hard cover and found it to be interesting. I was intrigued to find out what “WondLa” was. I had hoped through out the book that the "WondLa" thing that was tied to Eva's past was going to give out major answers about where she originally came from before her underground home but I wasn't given what I hoped for then. This book gives a tiny bit more info on her origins.

I’m eager to read The Battle for WondLa when it comes out, the third book in the series.

"In this sequel to The Search for WondLa, 12-year-old Eva Nine finally meets another human among the robots, talking plants, and bizarre creatures who populate her world. That human is Hailey, a boy pilot who promises to fly Eva and her alien friend Rovender to New Attica, a supposedly perfect society where people live beneath an enormous dome. Eva is dazzled by New Attica at first, but she soon figures out that something sinister is afoot - and that she and her friends are the only ones who can save New Attica from a dastardly villain. If your favourite parts of the Oz story are the strange and wonderful scenery and characters, don't miss this series, which (for those with webcams) offers more exploration of its fantastical world via interactive online games and tools."

Another great book by DiTerlizzi! I loved the first of the series and now I wait with anticipation for the third in the series! I love Eva Nine and her companions, and I really enjoyed this book and illustrations! The interactive website was fun, too! Highly recommend regardless of your age! (I'm 29 and still love GOOD young adult novels)!

I think I liked the first one better, but, this one was still good. Seems like a familiar type of storyline, though. I didn't find it a little bit sweet, I found it a lot sad/scary, but that's good, 'cause I enjoy reading stuff like that.

Exciting, interesting, and a little bit sweet. Can't wait for the next book.
