The Word Changers by Ashlee Willis ~ Review

The Word ChangersMy Review:

Posey’s world is falling apart, her parents are separating, and there is nothing she can do about it. So she escapes into the pages of a book finding herself lost in the plot in a way that she never could have ever imagined! Pulled into the story’s plot by Falak, an owl who is not all that he seems, Posey is forced to take on the role of the princess, dutifully playing her role. But all is far from right in the kingdom, and some have seen fit to take its plot into their own hands, can Posey and her new friend Kyran rescue the kingdom from a plot that has strayed from its Author?

What a delightful twist on the classic fairy tales! I loved the premise behind this story; that a girl actually get swept away into the book that she is reading. Isn’t that just every reader’s dream?

Posey is a bright and inquisitive girl, unafraid to ask the questions that others fear. She is also discerning, as well as adventurous. Kyran was a straightforward, yet at times mysterious hero, who coped remarkably well with the revelations that were thrown his way.

Overall, this was a fun read full of adventure, and I believe it would be especially great for ages 9-14. There was adventure, mystery, tough choices to make, and mystical animals such as centaurs, mermaids, talking owls, and more. Ms. Willis did and absolutely wonderful job with this allegory of God’s ever-present, never ending love, as well as His sovereignty and our free will. A terrific book for middle grade readers, as well as families, who share a love of reading, and dream of joining their heroes within the pages of a book.
