As No Man's Land becomes ever more twisted and terrifying, Sally and Zachary become pivotal in solving a mystery that concerns not only them, but all life on the planet.

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book is so different, but it is exciting and full of great action! However, it could use some more exciting, descriptive words. Throughout the book, I lost some interest and I felt that I was trying so hard to finish. Overall though, it was a pretty good book.
One night, Sally, on the verge of sleep, hits a cat named Zachary. She gets out of her car and desperately tries to wake the cat. With so much commotion going on Sally doesn't see the truck. Sally is hit by the truck and put in a coma. When she finally awakes from the coma, she finds Zachary attached to her shoulder! Now that she knows she can talk to animals and Zachary, she is in despair. When sleeping, Zachary and her are taken to a place called No Man's Land. While in No Man's Land, she finds more than she expected with tons of mysteries to solve.
My favorite part is when Zachary appears on Sally's shoulder because it is so funny and extremely weird.
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11 and up.
