The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens - ADVISABLE

Stephens, John The Emerald Atlas, 417 pgs. Alfred A. Knopf, 2011.

Language - PG (9 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence - PG

Kate, Michael, and Emma have been going from orphanage to orphanage ever since their parents disappeared Christmas Eve. Kate had a locket and the tiniest memory of them, Michael had one of his dad's books, and little Emma was too young when they left to have anything. They had just arrived to yet another orphanage where they discover a magic book and learn things they could never had dreamed of.

Time travel, magical creatures, and ignorant kids that become heroes equal a good book in my opinion. The Emerald Atlas is no exception, with adventures through time and discovering new things while trying to keep the world from falling apart always keeps me reading. The only thing I'm upset about is the long wait for the next two books.
