In the land of Story, children go to school to learn to be characters: a perfect Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They take classes on Outdoor Experiential Questing and Backstory, while adults search for full-time character work in stories written just for them.This book looks fantastic! It sounds so unique, I'm just going to devour when I get my hands on it. It sounds a bit like the Neverending Story, with the whole finding a book in the basement of her school, but other than that it sounds cool. I can't wait to read it. April is such a long way off. And it mentions A Wrinkle in Time, which I simply loved and I want to read Inkheart because I liked the movie. Storybound sounds like something I'm definitely going to enjoy!
In our world, twelve-year-old Una Fairchild has always felt invisible. But all that changes when she stumbles upon a mysterious book buried deep in the basement of her school library, opens the cover, and suddenly finds herself transported to the magical land of Story.
But Story is not a perfect fairy tale. Una’s new friend Peter warns her about the grave danger she could face if anyone discovers her true identity. The devious Tale Keeper watches her every move. And there are whispers of a deadly secret that seems to revolve around Una herself....
With the timeless appeal of books like A Wrinkle in Time and the breathtaking action of Inkheart, Storybound has all the makings of a new classic. Brimming with fantastical creatures, magical adventure, and heart-stopping twists, Storybound will leave readers wishing they too could jump through the pages into this enchanting fairy-tale world. --Goodreads
