Inkheart; Cornelia Funke

Inkheart was terrific. Links HERE. What would you do if a character falls out of their story & wanted to go back, but couldn't? What if an evil, awful villain & his henchman fall out & your beloved gets sucked in? How do you right the wrongs & redress what you've done?

Now imagine that your daughter, Meggie, all of 12, finds out your terrible, awful secret only after you've been kidnapped by the villain. She has no idea what you did, why you were always on the run & how on earth can she get you back. For advice & safekeeping, she has a distant relation who loves books but not people & a deceptive, sly man she can't depend on.

What happens when Meggie discovers she too has your awful & scary gift?

Currently reading Byzantium by Stephen Lawhead. A thousand page tome that tells a tale of the Book of Kells & its trip from ancient Ireland to Byzantium (Istanbul) & the adventures of the group of monks trying to give the Book to the Holy Emperor.

Please welcome Jenster to the blogroll. She too is a book-aholic, mom & wife recently transplanted to PA.
