Now, this time. I have the honor to review the book that made me curious if Mermaid was real. I mean, in Neverland, it probably does, but in Wonderland, I really hope to see one some day.

Hello dear Alice, have you been reading a book that you thought you’ll love but everybody is not saying the same? Moreover, it seems like you’re in the minority who’re saying that the book is not as good as the hype gave it. I believe that this book is one of them. Oh, before I begin, do allow me to apologize for missing for so long. I have been so immersed in the travel that I was doing on June and a bit exhausted afterwards. Well, without further ado, let’s start this, shall we? Ready Player One!

Title: Unwritten
Author: Tara Gilboy
Publisher: Jolly Fish Press
Summary: Twelve-year-old Gracie Freeman is living a normal life, but she is haunted by the fact that she is actually a character from a story, an unpublished fairy tale she’s never read. When she was a baby, her parents learned that she was supposed to die in the story, and with the help of a magic book, took her out of the story, and into the outside world, where she could be safe. But Gracie longs to know what the story says about her. Despite her mother’s warnings, Gracie seeks out the story’s author, setting in motion a chain of events that draws herself, her mother, and other former storybook characters back into the forgotten tale. Inside the story, Gracie struggles to navigate the blurred boundary between who she really is and the surprising things the author wrote about her. As the story moves toward its deadly climax, Gracie realizes she’ll have to face a dark truth and figure out her own fairy tale ending. Continue reading “[ARC Review] – Unwritten”
