Itsy Bitsy Book Review: THE UNWANTEDS 1 & 2

Today is FEBRUARY 27th. And do you know what is exciting about today?
It's my birthday!

Yep. It's true. 
It is also true that I just so happen to share a birthday with a really awesome, talented writer:
LISA MCMANN, author of The Unwanteds series.

If you think you've read all the good dystopian/fantasy that exists in the children's book industry, think again. This wildly imaginative series is one that should be on every middle-grade reader's list.

THE UNWANTEDS: The land of Quill holds a Purge each year where Unwanteds, those children who are creative, are sent away to the Death Farm to be killed. But what the people of Quill don't know, is that the Death Farm is really a beautiful, magical place called Artime, where creative talents are nurtured. The Unwanted children adore Artime, after all, they have everything they could ever want there. But for one child, thirteen-year-old Alex Stowe, there is one thing he still misses: his twin brother. And he wants to go back to Quill to "save" him.

THE UNWANTEDS: ISLAND OF SILENCE: Things have changed in Quill and they are changing in Artime as well. Alex Stowe is asked to take on a huge responsibility, but he's not sure he's up for the task. Plus, when two strange children from another island float onto Aritme's shores, the urge to discover where they came from gets Alex's friends into severe trouble.
