With this first sentence, readers are immediately thrust into a fast-paced thriller that doesn't let up for a moment. In a world not too far removed from our own, kids are being taken away to special workhouses if their families exceed the monthly debt limit imposed by the government. Thirteen-year-old Matt briefly wonders if he might be next, but quickly dismisses the thought. After all, his parents are financially responsible, unlike the parents of those other kids. As long as his parents remain within their limit, the government will be satisfied and leave them alone. But all it takes is one fatal visit to the store to push Matt's family over their limit—and to change his reality forever.
Review:Hi its Jess. I read the book The Limit and though it was great. It is a middle grade book about a boy who is thirteen. In this story if a family goes over a limit of spending their kids get taken away to work so the family can pay off the money they owe. This happens to Matt's family and he gets taken to a workhouse where he meets some new friends. Also he finds out that there might be more to this warehouse then meets the eye. I would suggest this book to my friends and people who like a story about adventure, friendship, mystery, and family.
I think you should read this book and I think you will like it.
