YA or children's Mystery/Time Travel a Name that Book (setembre 2013)


FROM AMAZON: More than half a millennium in the future, in the shadow of the looming Cydonian Pyramid, a pampered girl named Lah Lia has been raised for one purpose: to be sacrificed through one of the mysterious diskos that hover over the pyramid’s top. But just as she is about to be killed, a strange boy appears from the diskos, providing a cover of chaos that allows her to escape and launching her on a time-spinning journey in which her fate is irreversibly linked to his.The second book in the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, The Cydonian Pyramid continues the story of the enigmatic girl who changed Tucker Feye’s life, returning listeners to the terrifying, thrilling, and elusive worlds found in the diskos.… (més)

This book is about a boy who accidently used his mom's credit card and is forced to enter a pizza eating contest to win back the money. The main character has always had a interest in competitive eating and has a big appetite. This story is targeted towards intermediate grade students.

First sentence: Annie was swinging by herself when she noticed the curly-haired boy two houses down. She dragged her feet to stop the swing.

Premise/plot: The Rat Queen is one of those books where the less you know about the plot, the more you'll be drawn into the story. Still, I have to give you something.

Annike Klimas [Annie] is about to turn ten. On her birthday, her father gives her initiation of sorts to a [deep, dark] family secret, a ritual of sorts. Every day she's to write her "regrets" and "mistakes" onto a piece of paper, roll the paper up, and feed it to a hidey-hole in the floor of the study. This ritual is called "nuodeema burna." Her conscience will remain pleasantly numb and burden free so long as she feeds the "sin eater." Her father has been feeding it for years.....

But Annie begins to slowly but surely doubt the morality of this family secret. It is so very mysterious, weird, odd, strange.

Annie yearns for life....but barely lives. Her father keeps her mostly at home; she's raised by people hand-selected by her father from their home country of Litvania [fictional European country]. She loves stories, but can't help yearning for more, more, more than the fairy tales she's been raised on.

My thoughts: The world-building is excellent. The story-telling is excellent. It's got stories within stories--a handful of original stories that feel like they should be in the fairy tale canon. There are one or two stories that are traditional fairy tales included. The characters are limited--just a handful--but mostly complex. The book oozes atmosphere. It abounds in spookiness. The action--when it happens--is plenty intense. But this isn't action-packed. It's more MYSTERY and suspense than action and adventure. The mystery unfolds like Russian nesting dolls.

Who is it for???? That's what I'm wrestling with. Is it one of those books that adults will absolutely gush about and push on children??? Maybe. Maybe not. I know there are plenty of children's books that adults tend to love way more than the intended audience. But maybe there are middle graders who will love this one too.

I will say this one probably isn't for everyone. It is unevenly paced. It is driven by premise, then character, last of all action. When the action starts, its intense because the build-up has been long in coming. But I could easily see some might call it too slow.
