Unwritten by Tara Gilboy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought this would be the usual, somewhat overdone storyline – regular kids go into a storybook, and yadda, yadda, yadda. I’ve read some in that genre, but never really liked them. Truth is, it is the same idea, but the writing is way better, and the characters and conflicts are way more complex than the ones I’ve read before. It grabbed my attention from the first sentence, and didn’t let me go until the end. I finished it in one sitting.

First off, the characters felt so real. Their emotions and reactions were fantastically developed. I loved how complex the conflicts were, how Gracie had to fight her fear of becoming her written character, while trying to distinguish reality from false memories. It was very complex, and way better than I expected for a children’s book. Of course, the writing is still geared towards children, but this offers a lot to think about, hidden in a beautifully written story.

I highly recommend this book for everyone.

Disclaimer: I received an advance copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. (Honestly, this was a great book!)
