    Gracie and her mom live her our world. But they haven't always. They traveled from Bondoff, a storybook land when Gracie was just a baby. She'd always wanted answers to why they fled Bondoff so when the author of her story visits a local bookstore she sneaks off to find answers. Howeve...

    How does it feel to be part of a story written by someone else? And how does it feel to not understand why you were part of a story written by someone else, and who you were before? This is the problem that is facing Gracie, and it is driving her crazy, until she learned that the au...

    I love the idea of having different dimension waiting to told/written in a book or a story literally coming to life.. Isnt that what every book reader wish for? This book is it.. The adventures the kids had during the quest were thrilling.. Being a middle grade book, the only thing tha...

    This book has a really sweet premise and, truth be told, I'm a sucker for all things fairy tales. Gracie is a girl out of place. Her whole life has already been written out in an unpublished story that she's never seen and, seeing as how she is as inquisitive as they come, her only goa...

    Unwritten, by Tara Gilboy, is a middle-grade story that feels like a dark fairytale. The story?s protagonist is 12 year old Gracie, who dreams of fire and believes what her mother has told her: that she is actually a character who was rescued from a story. The story world is a parall...

    I thought this would be the usual, somewhat overdone storyline - regular kids go into a storybook, and yadda, yadda, yadda. I've read some in that genre, but never really liked them. Truth is, it is the same idea, but the writing is way better, and the characters and conflicts are way ...

    A super-cute fairy tale read that had a lot more depth to it than I was expecting. The story follows Gracie, who has always known that she and her mother escaped an evil villain in a fairy tale. Her mother managed to get her out of the fairy tale world and into the real world when Grac...

    Gracie is basically a good girl. Inquisitive and tenacious, maybe she sometimes skirts the rules. Not so unique for a twelve-year-old, and really, it is only one of Mom?s orders that Gracie disagrees with. She believes that information is knowledge, knowledge is power and she has a b...

    Unwritten offers a fresh new take on the old topics of good-vs-evil and nature-vs-nurture, focusing on that fascinating murky grey area that lies between the two extremes. From the very first pages of her debut, Gilboy plunges the readers into the strange world of Gracie Freeman, a...

    This book is seriously just so good. I loved the play between the idea of story and reality, and the idea of being a character from a story (really, what writer or reader hasn't had that dream before???). This is such a well executed tale, full of life, compelling characters, and adven...

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via NetGalley for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own. I really liked this middle grade novel! The idea of characters taken out of a story was really cool and it was also the ground for some nice reflections abo...

    So many of us bookworms dreamt to be in a different world, a book world. May it be as a student of Hogwarts, or finding the gateway to Narnia. What if we got to be a part of it only to discover that we are the villain of the story? What if you lead your life only to discover you are th...

    I received this from NetGalley in exchange for honest review. My first thought to this came from the beautiful cover. Judging this is a Middlegrade one, the cover already has a plus point to me! Intriguing and made me curious to read what's inside the book. Then the summary just ...

    "Because what does it mean, really, to be labeled a villain? Nobody really thinks of herself as a villain. We are all the heroes in our own stories.? Plot Starting off, I thought the book was kind of childish and cliche. I mean they thought an author was a terrible person because s...

    I got a copy of this book by Netgalley. It?s the story of Gracie, a character from a book who escaped her story when she was a baby. I was afraid when I started it it will be cheesy and I wouldn?t be surprise by this story. It?s a little bit under 200 pages and the pace of the ...

    Middle Grade Fantasy is one of my favorite genres and I usually enjoy the stories in this genre a lot. However, I found it hard to like Unwritten. I really wanted to like the story but the MC was just too dislikable. She was too selfish, self-absorbed, dismissive of people, an annoyi...

    This story follows Gracie - a young girl who was born inside of a story - but now lives with her mother in our world. She is plagued by "nightmares" of a fire and woman who beckons her - that are actually "glimmers" of memories of the story that she belongs in. "The dreams are gli...
