Author: Lauren Oliver
Page Count: 307
Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice-until one night a ghost appears from the darkness. It is Po, who comes from the Other Side. Both Liesl and Po are lonely, but together they are less alone.
That same night, an alchemist's apprentice, Will, bungles an important delivery. He accidentally switches a box containing the most powerful magic in the world with one containing something decidedly less remarkable.
Will's mistake has tremendous consequences for Liesl and Po, and it draws the three of them together on an extraordinary journey.
From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes a luminous and magnificent novel that glows with rare magic, ghostly wonders, and a true friendship that lights even the darkest of places.
"This book was like a ride in a sleeping car on a fabulous train, one with deep, plush upholstery, shining brass window latches, and secret compartments-one where the bed slides out soundlessly and the sheets are not too new but not too old, and where small, amazing cakes arrive regularly on lacquered trays while the night rushes by outside, the moon always visible. A gorgeous story-- timeless and magical."

This is a great book, I'm certain the end was my favorite. At first, the beginning seemed a little boring, but I must have a short attention span, or something like that, because I feel like I say that with a lot of books. The only reason that this book doesn't get five stars, is sometimes I got a little bit lost with who was who. There were quite a lot of vague pronouns thrown around in this book, if I do say.
The Bottom Line: Great book, a little bit confusing.
