New Release: The Glass Sentence

I was seeing a lot of hype online for The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove so I got on the library hold list nice and early and then promptly forgot why I wanted to read the book. Luckily, I picked it up anyway and realized just why there was so much excitement about it. The world building was amazing, the story was exciting, and I can't wait for the second book in the trilogy.

Sophia Tims lives with her uncle Shadrack, a cartographer in a world where maps are incredibly important (and are still being drawn) because, a few generations earlier, something happened and the Earth split into many different time periods. Now, on the eve of the two of them setting out to try to find her missing explorer parents, Shadrack is abducted and Sophia must set off across a divided continent to follow her uncle's last clue.

Though 500 pages is long for a children's book, I sped through it and I assume that any child would too. The characters are vivid and complex, the villains are truly terrifying and there is so much more that I want to know about the world.
