Delightful story about girl that doesn't fit in

It is a very well written, magical story about a misfit girl. It starts off quite slow in the beginning, but once you get farther into the story, you can't turn the pages fast enough. I rated it 10+ because of some of the (fairly mild) violence. It has a creepy character names Ezra Squall that sometimes hurts other characters, and a scary market filled with organs and bones of (imaginary) animals. It has no sex, and some drinking and smoking happens very infrequently at social events. It is very well written, with many positive role models, messages, and is educational because it tells you the definitions of words in a way that fits very beautifully in with the text.

Wundrous!

This is a really good book with a good bit of warm humour and some very loveable characters. I’d say it’s up among the likes of the Harry Potter books. This book also has some morals about being who you are and belonging.
