Description

A New York Times best-selling series
A USA Today best-selling series
A California Young Reader Medal-winning series  

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world - before the wrong person finds the answer first. 

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret - at least, that’s what she thinks....

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well...she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known. 

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death - and time is running out.

Unreflective, shallow morality. Exciting story.

My kids liked it. The world was authoritarian, and governed by irresponsible secrecy, rewards, and punishments. Not only do the kids in the book but into this structure, but the adults--nearly without exception--foster uncritical and uninformed respect for authority and nobility. The author seems to recognize that this isn't a virtuous structure for a society, but hasn't reflected enough on the moral bankruptcy of such mostly "benevolent" authoritarianism to treat it with depth or realism. So bullying at all ages and levels of society is normalized, and is an acceptable, if unpleasant, part of life. People can also commit high crimes through accidents of birth or curiosity, and the author has created a world where that's mostly fine. We won't be purchasing the next book for our kids.

Read the negative reviews first

I read a review similar to the one I'm writing now and thought: "Wow, what a bitter, grouchy, liberal conspiracy theorist!" I made it to chapter 15 when I realized she was right. The main character goes to a whole new world, where she is told hundreds of times (not exaggerating) "I can't tell you that yet" and "Don't worry about it" and the like. She's told she's a "good girl" for following blindly. It's awful. She swallows a lack of answers and follows blindly in a way that I hope my children NEVER will. Read Harry Potter or Fablehaven, or something with thinking characters. This main character made me sick - so sweet, but so stupid.

Amazing!

This book is amazing because it has humor and I think it made me cry like 14 or 15 times, but also the voices are so gentle if they need to or so scared or angry, if you are sick (I am) this is a nice relaxing book to listen to, really recommend it on audible, you won't regret your lose of cents, truest me. My mom asked me why I like the performance so much? It's because even when they sought they don't acutely scream like in story thieves or in the land of stories even thought both of them are very good. Another thing is if English isn't your first language this is the best thing to improve it, not this book only (even thought this book is AMAZING), audible and reading. Won't spoiler but REALLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Impressive Start

Another book I read because of a Harry Potter-esque recommendation. I don’t know what it is about it, but this book felt very epic to me. I am getting ahead of myself though. This is about a 12 year old girl, Sophie Foster, who has been able to read minds since she was five. One day she meets a boy at a museum whose thoughts she can’t hear, and he tells her they have been looking for her for twelve years. And he also happened to mention he’s an elf, and by the way—so is she. Sophie now needs to contend with who she always thought she was and who she will turn out to be, a whole new world, with not only a vast set of possibilities (Magic! Immortality!) but a set of strict rules too. As she tries to find her place in a new society and at a new school, where she really needs to work to keep her head above water, it slowly begins to look like there is even more mystery surrounding who she is than she initially thought. Also, there are these mysterious fires popping up threatening to kill humans, and nobody seems too bothered about stopping it from happening… I like Sophie’s character a lot. She is brave and tenacious and outspoken, all of the characters in here are very likeable, except when they’re clearly not supposed to. Most characters are a lot less whimsical than in Harry Poter, and like Harry Potter it’s very clear who are supposed to be the ‘good guys’ and the ‘bad guys’ and like Harry Potter the school setting is at times fun and a little ridiculous at times. It really like how the world and the magic is described, you get a very clear picture of how some of it works, and how it all looks. But there are two things I really didn’t like, and those were the insta-crushing on the cute boys, and how she went from being a moderately ok student in some subjects, to being a boss in all the things, without showing the reader how she made that progression I think this book sets up the series very well, and I think it will only get more interesting as the characters age with the story. I’m hoping things will get less black and white as this tale progresses, and the thought processes and conflicts get more intricate. Excited to continue the series. If you loved the pranks in Harry Potter (which I personally didn’t), a very driven main character, school rivalries, fun friendships, even if they are still a little superficial, another beautiful and lush world to discover, and a very colorful magic system, a compelling mystery, and adorable creatures to boot, I would recommend this to you! I think the narration for this was very good. It matched the stateliness of the older Elves, and all the characters; personalities shone through, but I think she made Sophie's character sound a little whinier at atimes. That could also be because she is really young in this book

exciting and inventive

I didn't like that the book kept emphasizing how much of a genius Sophie and the other elves were. They didn't act like geniuses. It took her too long to think about her family and too long to put clues together. The elf children at the school didn't act like elite, talented beings who would live forever. They acted like middle schoolers with drama and pranks and complaining about studying. Other than that, no problems. I loved that Sophie actually got in trouble when she did something wrong (like using telepathy to cheat!), and I love that she confessed and was tempted to misuse her abilities and kept trying to involve adults despite them keeping secrets.

Love love love

Originally I bought this book for my niece and nephew at Costco because it looked pretty cool and I want them to be interested in what they are reading but then I was interested in reading it and I end up finishing up before they did. I’m on the second book and I’m loving it so far. great book!

Must read/listen to for kids and adults

I bought these books for my 12 year old daughter. They were suggested to her by a friend. She has read all that are out and says she liked them even better than Harry Potter (she loved HP). She has been begging me to read them but I haven't had the time. I decided to buy the auto book and I am pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. From the front cover I was expecting more of a children's book but it was so well done that anyone from age 9-90 would enjoy it.

And enjoyable read, could have better narrator

I liked this book, it was a quick light listen. The world was interesting although the plot doesn’t feel like its building and things fall into place at the end. I mostly took issue with the narrator at points, particularly at the end dramatic parts. She makes the main character have a very whiny voice and the villains sound cheesily sinister. I would give the story a 3.75 but I’ll continue because i hear it improves in subsequent books
