Genre:  Fantasy Fiction

I read the book The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann. This book is Fantasy Fiction. On Quills purge day, Alex is categorized as an unwanted, while his twin brother Aaron is categorized as a wanted. Alex thinks he is going to die, but instead he is brought to a magical place called Artime. He ends up really missing Aaron, and tries to reach him, and it all goes downhill from there. This is an amazing book. It is the first in a six book series. This book is a pretty easy read, and consists of 390 pages. This book is good for ages 9 -13. It is a mix of Harry Potter, The Giver, and the Hunger Games. The author, Lisa McMann uses a lot of imagery in this story, which is probably why she is a New York Times best-selling author. I couldn’t put this book down! This book is filled with magic and adventure. It is suspenseful, and intriguing. I LOVED IT!
