Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
Category: Fantasy/Sci Fi
Personal Evaluation: This is one of my favorite kind of books: spunky girl character who loves books and is involved in an adventure or challenge that she solves, and everything falls into place neatly in the end. I loved this book.
What might interest children: Kids who are widely read will love picking out the many references to other books and characters. Anyone who’s ever wished that they’d been switched at birth and just knows they’ve got the dullest parents alive will adore this and envy Fern. I also found the puzzle of it intriguing (and would have as a kid too). It ties up nicely but still with enough to carry over into a trilogy.
