about

In the land of Story, kids go to school to learn to be the perfect character: a brave Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They dream of the day when they will live out Tales written just for them.

But when an ordinary girl named Una Fairchild finds herself Written In to Story, she discovers that the magical land is threatened by a dark secret. As she digs deep into Story's shadowy past, Una realizes that she is tied to the world in ways she never could have imagined—and it may be up to her to save it.

Marissa Burt was forever getting notes sent home from teachers about reading novels during class. She grew up in Oregon and now lives in the Seattle area with her husband and three sons. Marissa is also the author ofStorybound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fantasy story Awesome characters, a fantastic read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't Stop Reading It was a real treat to read Storybound by Marissa Burt. Una is a foster child who has no idea of her history. All she knows is that she has lived in a lot of families yet not been considered a part of any of them. She feels invisible at home and at school. To escape the torments of school, she seeks solace in the library basement. One day she is forced to sit at a different table and ends up reading an unusual book. It is unmarked and untitled. Inside the book it has a title "The Tale of Una Fairchild"; what are the chances that their was another person with the same name. Somehow, this book magically transports Una to another place/school. In this place, people are referred to as characters, and the students are preparing to become characters in books. By this point I was totally immersed in this story. I could hardly put it down. How could there be a world where students trained to become the beloved characters as well as the evil villains in the books I read. Wow. Great concept. I am not going to tell you any more about the story as I don't want to give away a thing. I will say that I did not figure out what was going to happen next and was racing through the book to find out. I didn't want to story to end, but I wanted to know what had happened to create the current situation that pulled Una into that world. This would be a wonderful story to read with your pre-teen. The cast of characters is quite diverse with heroes, villains, talking animals and ladies in need of rescue, and don't forget Una, who is quite capable of rescuing others. I know my ten year old nephew would love it.

Editorial Reviews

“With its unique twist (her roommate, for example, is a snooty Snow White), Una’s adventures should charm those who enjoy fairy-tale reboots, and the cliff-hanger ending could ensure demand for a sequel.”
