Reviews:
This book is an OPLBERY WINNER! This is a page turner. you cannot put this book down. – Eric

This book is an OPLbery winner!! This book is really good because it has a lot of details that pulls you into the book. I mostly liked the surprise at the end. And I liked how the author showed Rose’s story as well.-Colleen

This book is amazing!!!!!!!!  It is similar to the book, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”  in the way that is is made up mostly of pictures, but the story(s) is completely different.  There are two different stories going on at once, but in different times.  This phenominal story with a surprise ending should definitely win the OPLbery.-Skyler
