The Chronicles of Egg: Deadweather and Sunrise is a book about a thirteen year old boy named Egbert (Egg) trying to live as normal a life as he can on a stinky, small, and hostile island called Deadweather.  One fateful day, Egg loses his family.  A man named Mr. Pembroke offers him a job, which he accepts.  While going to his job, he almost gets pushed off a cliff, and accidentally kills the man who tried to kill him.  This is the adventurous story of how Egg is running for his life and finds out a very well guarded secret.  Find out what the secret is in this exciting book. 


I really liked this book and cannot wait to read book two.  This is an exciting, thrilling, excellent book, although the characters are farfetched.  Egg is my favorite character because he is the hero of the story.  The character I think I would most likely find in the real world would be Millicent, who is rich and spoiled.  I would recommend this book for ages 11 and up, because the pronunciations used at some parts in the book were kind of hard to understand, like "at for the word that, and wot for the word what." Also, it is a little violent at times.  Geoff Rodkey did an awesome job on this book, because I did not want to put the book down until the last page.
