Echo: Species Intervention
This book was set in the not to far off future where a young boy called Scotty goes in search for fairies, only to find Echo, who is the offspring of baby (from book one)
The world as we know it has started to change. Muslims run the majority of the world. There has been a polio epidemic and poor Scotty was left with impetigo scars and problems with his eyes. His sister Abby also has problems with her kidney and her family cannot afford to buy her a new kidney.
Times are tough. Families receive no benefits and you need an appointment to even go to the emergency room.
Then there is Jose. His family were killed when he was just a little boy and he was sent to live in America with his new adopted family. Life was tough when he did not understand english.
One day his adopted family moved in with Scotty's family as money was tight.
As time goes on and they grow up, nothing is really mentioned of Echo until Scotty's mother dies in a car accident. This is when their lives are turned upside down.
This is definitely a must read. I strongly recommend this book to everyone!
