Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly

Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly

Lost in a Book, by Jennifer Donnelly, is a re-telling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, but it has a new twist. Readers will be familiar with the story of Belle and how she comes to be locked in the Beast's castle in exchange for her father's freedom. Throughout her captivity she befriends the enchanted inhabitants of this mansion. She also spends much of her time in the castle's library and comes across an enchanted book called Nevermore. In Nevermore, the line between fiction and reality are blurred. Could Belle get lost in a book…literally? Little does Belle know that there are forces of good and evil that fight to shape her future. In this journey, Belle reflects on the true meaning of love and friendship. This book was a cute little read, but the ending kept me hanging. There were many details that I was expecting to be revealed and resolved. In spite of its ending, I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy young adult fantasy and fairy tale re-telling
