Review by Nancy Holzner
You’re reading a book and then you put it down, turning your attention to other things. What happens to the book’s characters when you stop reading? That’s the question James Bow asks in The Unwritten Girl, a charming and imaginative fantasy for middle-school readers.
Rosemary Watson prefers facts to stories; she’d rather read the Encyclopedia Britannica than get emotionally involved in the pain and conflict of literature. But when her older brother Theo literally loses himself in a book, Rosemary must venture into the Land of Fiction to find him and bring him home.
