    Great Book

    You will get lost in The Lost Children by Carolyn Cohagan a former standup comic that wrote this book with a sales rank of 265,236. This fantasy is like no other, it will transport you into the exiting, mysterious world. This books theme is hope, good vs. evil, friendship and freedom. Your adrenaline will run through your vanes, and your heart will pump. Before you know it, you¿ll be at the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. Be prepared to read if you love adventure, mystery, and monsters. This heart pumping fantasy will hook you right away. Carolyn said, ¿Traveling always inspires me; new sights, sounds, smells, and colors take root in my writing without me even noticing, I always try to be a part of a writers group.¿ She is currently working on the second to this new hair rising series! In the book The Lost Children, Josephine, the main character, finds a strange boy in her garden. Without a second thought, she follows him; the next thing she knew is that she is in a magical world of Gulm! This is a page turner quest to get home with the help of her friends Ida and Fargus. Ida is a fierce, strong girl, and Fargus is a quiet, mysterious boy. Will Josephine ever find her way home? I think Carolyn Cohagan¿s craft was creative, and breathe taking. She used a lot of creative adjectives to get the reader a mental picture of the story. An example is, ¿Josephine had a delicate, and heart shaped face, a button nose, and long eyelashes that made her eyes wide and bright.¿ She also described the setting in a creative way,¿ my dad, gloves and I live miles away from the nearest neighbor, or food market. ¿It makes me feel like I¿m actually in this book! I think Carolyn was successful because this was her very first book and it was very exciting, well edited and an all nighter book. This is why I always recommend it. This person loves it too, ¿I love this book so I defiantly recommend it to anyone who loves a GREAT book!¿ This person also agrees, ¿I absolutely loved this book! After reading Harry Potter, every book I read seemed very boring. This book was AMAZING! I could not put the book down. I read it within one day because it was so interesting. I always wanted to know what happened next. I enjoyed the action and I hope that there is a sequel because I loved The Lost Children so much!¿ Some books that I might recommend that are similar to this book is, No Passengers behind This Point by Gennifer Choldenko, Savvy by Ingrid law, Scumble also by Ingrid Law, Spellbinder by Helen Stringer, and The Hunger Games trilogy series by Suzanne Collens. The book I would recommend the most is No Passengers behind This Point by Gennifer Choldenko. I would because the people in this story were also transported to another magical world. They also try to escape like Josephine. Also some people in that world they couldn¿t trust and in the world Gulm they couldn¿t trust a lot of people either. Thank you for reading my review I hope you enjoyed it! ¿
