The Lost Conspiracy (Gullstruck Island)

by Frances Hardinge

The Lost Conspiracy, by Frances Hardinge, is a wonderful and carefully crafted adventure, with every character complete and every detail tied in. As story after story piles in, the rich world of Gullstruck Island comes clear: the volcanoes bicker and cheat, the cities are rotting from the insides out, and one's smile is a thing to be feared. A great read for anyone who thinks YA novels can be something other than simple.

One of my favorite books!! Totally worth reading, especially if you are one of those older kids who is sick of the  typical fantasy plot line. (hero discovers magical powers/country, discovers they fulfill some prophecy, go on an adventure, ultimatly succeed.) It has some very interesting themes and is very well written!
