Summary: Tommy feels lost after his father’s death. To make matters worse, his mom moves him to a new town where he doesn’t have any friends, and he quickly becomes a punching bag for the school bully. He can’t win. So, when a mysterious visitor approaches him with the promise of adventure, Tommy jumps at the opportunity. Whisked away to a school in the sky where magic rules and storms are forged by an elite group of Sky Raiders, Tommy learns that the world’s problems are much larger than his own. When the weather spirals out of control and a rogue Raider’s diabolical plans surface, Tommy must decide how much he is willing to risk to save the world.
Initiation is an incredible story about a boy named Tommy. When Tommy moves after his dad’s death, he feels like his life has been turned upside down. I could kind of understand his feelings because our family just moved to Texas from Malaysia! Tommy had a terrible first day of school but was surprised when a man showed up inviting him to Sky Raider Academy. But something terrible happens there too! Throughout the rest of the story, Tommy makes new friends and solves a big problem. I really enjoyed this story and simply couldn’t put it down. I loved how this book twists and turns in both predictable and unexpected ways.
