The Unwanteds takes place in the dreary, rusty, rundown city of Quill, where if you are to creative, you get killed on the annual purge when you are 13 by being thrown into the lake of boiling oil. But alas, you actually get sent to the magical land of Artime, where being creative is encouraged. It has a very generic good vs bad plot and one of the best endings ever in a book with the battle, which is kind of disturbing, but the rest is pretty clean. The book has one very major downfall, though, it’s so gosh darn slow! If you crossbred a turtle and a snail, and then slowed down time The Unwanteds would be that snurtle. But anyway, it’s more good than bad, but being a Mark Twain award nominee (it may have won by the time you read this, I don’t know), I expected more. Overall, it’s a decent book, and you should get it just for the ending.
These were my OPINIONS on the Unwanteds.
