If you are very lucky every once in a while you will find a book you become so immersed in that it becomes the real world and the real world melts away. Where you read a scene in the book where it is pouring down rain and then when you look back up you are startled to find that the sun is shining and you wonder for a few seconds what has happened to the rain. That’s how this book was for me.
Nevermoor is a truly ‘wunderous’ tale of an eleven-year old cursed girl that is expected to die on eventide, but instead escapes her fate with the help of Jupiter North, a member of the Wundrous Society, and finds herself in the magical world of Nevermoor. Upon arrival in Nevermoor, Jupiter informs Morrigan Crow she is his candidate that year into the Society where to be accepted she must complete 3 trials and display a ‘knack.’
