Annie Nobody has nothing. Traveling from foster home to foster home, nothing is going her way. Jamie Alexander is also in an awful condition. His father and grandmother are very, well, suspicious. Annie and Jamie are the kids that just don’t fit in, until they are taken to a magical city. Suddenly, Annie finds out that, unknown to her, she has special gifts and is given the responsibility of saving the magical world. With an evil villain coming back, all of the city is in danger. Not many people would trust children to save the city, but once you get into the middle of the book, you’ll understand why.
I think this book gave a good perspective on knowing that even the children that are standing in the background can get the opportunity to save people.
This book was good. It started out a little uninteresting. As the book developed, it became very interesting. There was a variety of magical characters that were fun to read about. It felt like I could see them and hear them.
