To be honest, I was floored when I learnt that Jack Heath wrote The Lab in high school. Needless to say, most high school students, even the ones interested in writing, couldn't write something this coherent or interesting. At least, I haven't met any. It's definitely amusing, though, to look at the world Heath has built- only a few decades away- and compare it to the society we have now. It's not hard to find the modern-day sources of the futuristic ChaoSonic empire. Maybe that's another reason I liked The Lab.
Detective Bromham is a good cop in a bad city, sent alone to investigate a homicide. When a vengeful physicist captures Agent Six of Hearts and blasts him backwards through time, he has one chance to prevent her from unleashing a catastrophe. This bone-chilling tale was shortlisted for Best YA Short Story at the 2013 Aurealis Awards. Brent Coffee hasn’t seen his former classmate, Molly Sinclair, in nearly a decade, but all that changes when he shows up to fix her Wi-fi connection on St. Patrick’s.
Books related to The La. Not dwelling on unnessesary details, Jack Heath dives strait into the high adrenalin action.
Books related to The Lab. Skip this list. With exploding helicopters aplenty, this is a great read for teens and adults. Would be good to have a second book though.
