Gr 3-6–A fictional character brought to life, 12-year-old Gracie changed her story and united her family in Unwritten. In this fast-paced sequel, Gracie must grapple with her imperfect life in hiding with her author and fellow characters, especially their mistrust of her based on her villainous role in their story. Gilboy skillfully depicts Gracie’s fears that she may be fundamentally evil even as she strives to do the right thing in the surprisingly complex continuation of this ongoing series. Although the plot’s quick finish with a set-up for the next installment lacks an emotional resolution, Gracie’s strong characterization will hold readers’ interest.
VERDICT Recommended for purchase in large collections or for fans of the previous title.
