Hulight Visions: Undercurrents is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and adventure subgenres. It is intended for middle-grade readers to enjoy. Penned by author Eleanor Matera, the story unfolds in a future where life revolves around a space satellite community in 13072. For 12-year-olds, the pinnacle is training for non-adult supervision in the 3D holographic universe decks known as Hulight. This story seamlessly blends the excitement of space exploration, the thrill of augmented reality, and the challenges of adolescent camaraderie. As eight children embark on their journey within Hulight, they inadvertently stumble into a world of industrial sabotage, consciousness kidnapping, and technological theft.
Author Eleanor Matera shows enormous passion and enthusiasm in her crafting of this delightful immersion into a futuristic world where imagination and technology collide. The narrative beautifully captures the essence of childhood curiosity, friendship, and the thirst for adventure, with some very endearing characters and dialogue exchanges along the way. The author's skill in crafting a vivid and dynamic universe, coupled with the unique concept of Hulight, creates a compelling narrative that is sure to engage its target readership. I feel it also works on many levels that adults, teachers, and guardians would all enjoy experiencing with the children in their care. The characters' growth, both individually and as a team, showcases a lot of great moral messages about how to handle unexpected challenges and stick together. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Hulight Visions: Undercurrents to fans of mystery, teamwork, and coming-of-age adventures everywhere, as it was a truly captivating exploration of a future where imagination knows no bounds.
