Synopsis: Landon and Broden are brothers. And some days they DO NOT get along very well.
They spend most of their days fighting, arguing and plotting ways to get revenge on each other.
Then, strange things start happening…
Noises in their room that are not the cat.
Homework is mysteriously finished.
A broken shoelace repairs all by itself.
Clothes are put in the hamper on their own.
The brothers want to share their weird experiences, but they don’t know if they can trust each other.
But when they find out who’s behind all the strange things around the house, they are called to battle.
Battle? Whoa! Right there in the forest by their house! A battle with the most unusual creatures and wildest of beasts. And when the battle turns more dangerous than they imagined, Landon and Broden must face their fears, put their grudges aside and learn how to work together.
The Ifs is a lively adventure filled with sibling rivalry, bizarre creatures, dangerous battles, and brotherly love, a winning combination for a captivating read.
If you have siblings, which I don't (however, I am the mother of four so have witnessed the "affection" brothers and sisters share when no one's looking) then you will be able to relate to the love, hate relationship Landon and Broden have. They are the best of friends and the worst of enemies, but when it really counts there's nothing one wouldn't do to protect the other. So when the Ifs enter the picture and ask for help Landon and Broden band together and prepare to battle. The brothers discover they will be battling villainous Ifs that are threatening to bring harm to the kind Ifs who sought their help. As most wars go, trickery and evil gain the upper hand and Landon and Broden find themselves in immanent danger. Will the brothers be able to escape the destructive plan before it's too late?
This crazily creative tale uses an imaginative story line to instill the beauty of brotherly love in its readers. The author does a wonderful job of setting the stage for the ensuing battle that ultimately strengthens the bond of Landon and Broden. Vivid detail and a well developed plot make The Ifs an all around great read.
