Rosemary Watson slapped her schoolbooks down on a study cubicle. The Outsiders has to be the most depressing book ever, she thought. She pushed her fingers beneath her thick glasses and rubbed the bridge of her nose.

The school bus was late and getting later. Through the window behind her came a muffled laughter and the smack of icy snowballs. Rosemary sighed and slumped in her seat.

Rosemary Watson loves to read. But if there is a problem in the book where someone gets hurt emotionally, or when the book gets scary or sad, she stops reading! She just stops. One day she meets a new guy at school, and they become friends. Rosemary's older brother Theo, had a nervous breakdown a few years back, so his whole family keeps a close eye on him. One day her brother comes home, seeming lost in a book. He never puts it down. He really is lost in the story. Rosemary has to figure out how to get her brother out of the story, before its too late.

James Bow wrote The Unwritten Girl. James Bow is an excellent writer! The way his stories just suck you in! James lives in Canada, with his wife and daughter. He is a freelance journalist. He is also a major science fiction fan.

This book was one of the best books I have ever read. The descriptions were amazing. I have never read a book like this. Not even one with the same concept or idea. The Unwritten Girl is a book I would gladly read over and over again. I really hope that there will be a sequel to this book very soon.

I give The Unwritten Girl 5 out of 5 stars.
