About The Sixteen:
There are people out there who don¹t die with their bodies. Their souls live on in the bodies of others. Some good, some bad‹they are soul jumpers.
Nothing in Iris Brave¹s world makes sense anymore. Her father, Micah, is still alive‹his soul survives in the body of a teenage boy.
It is up to Iris and a rogue group of soul jumpers called the Sixteen to save Micah. To do so Iris must take on the unscrupulous leaders of the Council. Can she save her father? Will she survive? Who can she trust when one mistake could cost her everything?
Scared and running out of hope, Iris doesn¹t know what her next move should be but she knows she must act to save the people she loves. A long way from home and surrounded by people who she knows are not what they seem, Iris jeopardizes her own freedom. Her brave rescue forces her on the run and changes her into someone she could¹ve never imagined.
In the Soul Jumpers Series, Ali B. shares the message that we are more than the body we live in, everyone can be brave and while there is evil in the world, there is also infinite good.
My Thoughts: The Sixteen is the second book in Ali B.'s Soul Jumper series. The heroine, Iris, is a little humble at first but soon becomes a force to be reckoned with. Iris is someone whom the the target audience (middle school) can relate to. The story is well written and picks up where the initial story - Iris Brave - left off. Iris learns what really happened to her father who she thought died in a tragic accident. She also learns about her abilities as a soul jumper. Author Ali B. does a great job developing the character of Iris and this action-filled book would make a great read for middle school-aged kids.
