    This book is creative. It is also a little interesting. It is about a 13-year old boy who is a klutz. He finds out he has a special talent after he gets a package of strange sands(yes, sands) for a birthday present. He meets other people with strange talents like his. One of the weird people that he meets is his grandfather. His grandfather is a little crazy and somehow convinces Alcatraz that he lives in a world controlle d by evil librarians. They go on a somewhat wild adventure after the sands that he got for his birthday get stolen by the librarians. Overall, this book is a cool but somewhat confusing. I hope you found this review helpful. Have a nice week!

        This book was recommended to me by a friend of mine. At first, I didn't know what to think of it. Then it got REALLY interesting. If you are a fan of Percy Jackson or Harry Potter, then I would definitely recommend this book. I would also recommend having the next book on hand, because, well, you will definitely want to read it as soon as you are done with the first one.
