This book is such a great fantasy novel, you just have to read it. Morrigan Crow is cursed, and she is blamed for all the accidents or unlucky incidents that happen in her town. She is also doomed to die on her 11 birthday at midnight. But then, on the night of her birthday, a strange man named Jupiter comes and takes her away from her home in a huge two-story-high brass pod, far away from her dull family, narrowly escaping death. They arrive in the secret, magical, colorful city Nevermoor, where Morrigan learns that Jupiter has chosen her to compete in four difficult trials to get into the incredible 'Wundrous Society' which Jupiter himself is in. There she learns that getting into the Wundrous Society isn't going to be as easy as it sounds, as she's competing against more then 500 kids, and she's expected to have a talent that makes her special, when she's sure that she doesn't. Will Morrigan discover her talent that Jupiter assures her she has, or will she fail the talent trial, and get sent back to her old home, where she's doomed to die. Read the book to find out what happens next. If you really like reading fantasy novels, this is the book for you, with just the right amount of action, emotion, and wit. I'm hoping there will be a sequel, because I can't get enough of this story, and I couldn't put it down when I was reading it. This story takes you away to another world, and you really care about the characters. I recommend this book to kids in late elementary and middle school.
