"If you're looking for happily ever after, you've come to the wrong place."

Reckless by Cornelia Funke
394 p.
Little, Brown and Company

Summary: Jacob enters the Mirrorworld and tries to save his younger brother Will from becoming a beast.

Genre: dark fairy-tale fantasy

Why I chose it: See the quotation at the top of this post! I loved Inkheart and am always a fan of dark fairy tales. My middle school students keep requesting Reckless; it hasn't made it to the shelves in months. The publisher's trailer is awesome!
