Laura's October 2018 pick, 4 of 5
Jaclyn Moriarty has one of the best imaginations I've encountered in a long time. She has created a main character full of spunk and determination, and a world full of whimsy and chaos. The story starts with Bronte receiving the news that her parents, whom she has never met, have been killed by pirates. According to their will, she must travel across the Kingdoms and Empires to visit her 11 aunts and give them each a gift from her parents. The catch, of course, is that the will is fairy cross stitched, which means that if she doesn't fulfill the exact terms and conditions laid out, her entire hometown will be torn to pieces. Quite a lot of pressure to put on a 10-year-old girl! I would especially recommend this book to fans of Lemony Snicket and Terry Pratchett. All throughout reading of Bronte's fantastical adventures, I kept thinking of one word: delightful. It's truly the best way to describe this book. In fact, I enjoyed the read so much that upon finishing it, I emailed the author to tell her just how delightful an experience it was!
