Storybound by Marissa Burt

About the book:

"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.

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.

My Review:

I loved this middle grade book!  The story swept me away to another world right from the beginning!  Una finds a book and opens it.  Inside it says The Tale of Una Fairchild.  That is her!  She begins to read the book and soon she finds herself in the story!  I love the land of Story and all of the characters who live there!  The element of mystery was wonderful and I found myself reading and reading!  For a 400 plus page book, it went by so fast!  There was a twist that I never saw coming and endearing characters that I can’t wait to read more about!  I hope that Marissa Burt is writing fast because I need to find out what happens in book two!  An awesome read that will leave you wanting more, Storybound is a must read for a kid or adult of any age!
