The Dark Life - book review #iLoveMG

This is part of my continuing series, #iLoveMG , where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

The Dark Life

Recommended by Elliot

Dark Life by Kat Falls is a high fantasy novel. It is about a boy named Ty, who has spent his whole life undersea, helping his family farm flourish. But roaming around undersea, there is also a group of outlaws, and when these outlaws start causing trouble, Ty is caught up in the shuffle, and has to fight for his home. 

He finds a girl named Gemma, who is from land, but has come undersea to look for her brother. As they venture, they also uncover secrets about living undersea. Seacrets that cannot fall into the wrong hands. 
Dark Life is a great book where layer after layer of secrets unfold, leaving the reader guessing. To lovers of Jennifer A. Neilson and Suzanne Collins, Dark Life is full of action, adventure, and lots of secrets. I strongly recommend this book. I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
