The Ifs by JD Pooker is an interesting story. It is perfect for kids in the middle grade. I would recommend this to my 9 year old brother. It is a tale reminiscent of The Borrowers or The Littles or a movie like Epic. I loved both series as a child. As for The Ifs, Landon and Broden are perfectly described as brothers. The tension between them is very true to life. What happens next is a stunning journey into another type of people's life. Even more engrossing than Horton and the Whos. The Ifs is a powerful tale. A little more character development would have been awesome, but overall it was well written.
