A YA genre book that is interesting and a quick read for adults. Would be fun to share with a tween.

Even though it may be written for kids a little younger than me, I thought that the concepts and everything tied together really nice. I found the book enjoyable and hope that the library can get the 2nd book in the series soon.

In the land of Story, kids go to school to learn to be the perfect character: a brave Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They dream of the day when they will live out Tales written just for them.

But when an ordinary girl named Una Fairchild finds herself Written In to Story, she discovers that the magical land is threatened by a dark secret. As she digs deep into Story's shadowy past, Una realizes that she is tied to the world in ways she never could have imagined—and it may be up to her to save it.
