2011 book 21

John Stephens' The Emerald Atlas
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, the first book in this new fantasy trilogy brings the story of three siblings and a mysterious book. Ten years ago, their parents were forced to abandon the three small children, and they've been living in orphanages ever since. But when eldest sister Kate, middle brother/explorer Michael, and tough little Emma find a book in a secret basement room, they're suddenly thrust into a world of adventure and time-travel, fighting to save a village from an evil witch. Of course their purpose is bigger than that, and I look forward to their quests in the next two books. A. Sidebar to Christina: Stephens is a former writer for Gilmore Girls and the OC!
