Unwanteds by: Lisa McMann

imgresThis is a great book!! I like it a lot because it is a mix between my two favorite books, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games. It did start out a little boring but then once I got into it I could not stop reading it! This book is about a boy named Alex who has a twin brother Aaron. They both live in a place called Quill and there is something called ‘the purge’ where the kids are separated into three groups: Wanteds, Necessaries, and Unwanteds. the creative kids are the Unwanteds. Alex gets put in the Unwanteds where they are supposed to get killed, but instead of getting killed they live in a secret land called Artime. Aaron is a Wanted. The brothers miss each other secretly so Alex tries to get to Aaron but fails and puts the whole island of Artime in danger.

I recommend this book for grades: 5th-8th
