    Sophie Cameron's second novel, Last Bus to Everland, takes a page from J. M. Barrie and C.S. Lewis, in creating a magical place for a group of Scottish misfits. The main character, Brody Fair, is sixteen. He feels inferior to his genius brother Jake, and his home life consists of a ...

    I received an arc of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. Let me start by saying, I really loved this book! I?m a big fan of a portal fantasy trope to begin with, but I was not expecting the complex cast of diverse characters I would fin...

    It has been a very long time since I?ve gobbled a book up so greedily. As I close the cover I can?t help but muse that, once again, a book that I so desperately needed to read fell into my lap at the exact point in my life that I needed to read it. Sophie Cameron tells the story...

    Last Bus to Everland comes with three starred reviews and a Goodreads rating well over 4.0. I actually kind of hate when this happens. I expect so much from books that get this amount of praise. And yes, Last Bus to Everland was good. But was it GREAT? Meh. Possibly I expected to much;...

    ? Video Review ? Last Bus to Everland is a novel that, while it includes a portal fantasy world, is much more Contemporary than Fantasy and deals with a lot of friendship and family dynamics, that are all incredibly complex and well done. ?There's bravery in surviving t...

    I'm absolutely a lover of fantasy. So when I saw Last Bus to Everland by Sophie Cameron on Netgalley, I knew that I had to give it a read. When I first started reading it, actually, I was reading it out loud to my husband in the car. I read the first paragraph of this and another bo...

    Great read for young adults who feel like they don't fit in and would love to escape reality. Lots of Peter Pan references although you would still enjoy the book if you're not a fan. I enjoyed it!! Brody is a teen living in a very small apartment in Edinburgh with his mother, his ...

    If you?ve not yet read Sophie Cameron?s debut novel, Out of the Blue, then you won?t know what a magical treat you?re in for. With her second novel, Last Bus to Everland, Sophie has once again delivered an emotional, realistic, contemporary novel, full of love, hope, and magic....

    I received this as an eARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Brody is worthless, or atleast that is how he feels. He isn't as smart as his genius older brother and two girl bullies are constantly getting on him. After the bullies kidnap his cat, Tink, and she is sa...

    A quietly magic, truly lovely story. Despite it?s fantasy elements, this wonderful book felt so incredibly real. It brilliantly explores an array of topics, from sexuality to mental illness to poverty to academic pressures and features a wonderfully diverse cast (the MC is gay and...

    [Ad - Gifted] I adored Sophie Cameron's debutOut Of The Blueand so when Macmillan sent me an advanced copy of her new book, I was over the moon. Everland is a secret world beyond a door that appears at 11:21pm every Thursday and the protagonist, Brody, happens upon it after a...

    *E-ARC PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW. Brody Fair?s life is everything but what he imagined for himself. His family is extremely poor, he thinks his brother gets all the attention, he?s picked on, and all around just doesn?t fit into the cookie cutter mold that the...

    Surprises can be a hit or a miss for me. Sometimes it's like sticking my hand in a mystery box and hoping nothing cuts my fingers off. I came into Everland thinking it'd be a light and quirky story about a boy who goes to a magical world and discovers himself while befriending a ban...

    I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I really loved the feel of this book - it?s sort of gently whimsical but still dealing with teenage life. Brody doesn?t feel like he fits in really, but finds Nico and Everland and begins t...

    I really did not like this book at the start, but I?m glad I kept reading. I expected more of the story to be about everland, so I was initially disappointed by the brief descriptions and poor world building, but I am so glad about the direction the book actually took. Everland was c...

    "I found Everland. I found my people." He smiles and gives my shoulder a little push. "And now you have, too." When I started reading Last Bus to Everland I wasn't sure what I expected, maybe a light read about a boy who discovers a secret world where he can escape all of his real-l...
