BeautyBeauty Beauty It's what I kept thinking as I read; as I closed the book for the night I saw and felt artistry at work It's been a long time since I felt immersed in an author's world; actually involved in the story; actually IN the world In fact the last time was maybe never But by the power of this author's gorgeous writing I endured slow motion end of summer doldrums and later dragged myself to school and family meals right along with the story's eponymous hero Calliope Jones Lulled to calm before the stormI found the author's word choices perfectly apt and descriptive in wonderful ways; sights and smells tastes and touch the lights and noise of her world so colorful redolent delicious; mundanely familiar and vividly real It's like phrase after phrase I'd clutch the book to my chest close my eyes and re enter her world to savor it all again; like recalling the layered flavors of a favorite childhood comfort food and beverage Fun and evocative But I couldn't pause I couldn't stop and re savor a moment of her world I had to move on Despite her storytelling's beauty the author held me in suspense and eager to plunge deeper into her taleThis book is the best example I've ever read of an author leveraging my fuller knowledge of the hero's fate fuller than the hero's own to yank me into the story then through it so I could satisfy my itch to learn the details of how things got where they're goingShe stuffed me with that fuller knowledge by starting the book with an intriguing flash forward; a scene vague enough not to give everything away but grandiose and packed with climactic cinematic action And in it I felt the hero's awe her wonder excitement trepidation and resolveThen the author tossed me out of the flash forward back to the story's start back where it all began and even knowing where I was headed sort of she drew me headlong and uncontrollably through the story with hardly the sense of a page flip as the hero delved the mystery she'd stumbled on dug out its secrets and made sense of her discoveries about herself about her world And through it all I experienced her warring excitement and reluctance even refusal to accept her supposed destiny She's her own girl after all Calliope JonesAnyway I really liked this book in case it didn't come across I think you will too I think ANY kid will
