As a young boy, Matty escaped from another place to live in the Village. For the last six years, he has lived peacefully there with the blind Seer. Now changes are coming to the Village, and the nearby Forest is turning hostile. Will Matty be able to make one last trip through the Forest to bring the Seer's daughter Kira to live in the Village before its boundaries close? If you enjoy dystopian fiction and Lois Lowry's other books, The Giver and Gathering Blue, be sure to read this book. These three companion books have themes and characters in common. Lowry's new book, Son, will answer many of the questions raised in the first three books.

Midnight for Charlie Bone

Jenny Nimmo (2003), 416 pages
Audience: 4th Grade - 6th Grade
Category: Especially for Boys, Fantasy, Fiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
When he is 10-years-old, Charlie discovers that he is able to look at photographs, and hear conversations, even thoughts, that were taking place at the time the photos were taken, a legacy of his ancestor, the Red King, whose descendants all have different magical abilities. Charlie hears one conversation that sets him on a search for a girl who has been missing for years, and, when he begins attending Bloor's Academy, an elite boarding school for the rich and the endowed (as the Red King's descendants are called), his life becomes full of intrigue and danger. Charlie, his friend, Benjamin, and other allies try to unlock the secrets of a mysterious case that could get the girl back, while the sinister Bloors and Charlie's ghastly relatives, who are endowed, try to thwart them. While the parallels with Harry Potter are obvious, this fantasy has its own charms, chief among them being the endoweds' often-odd magical abilities.
