It's books like this that still give me hope! Lately, I've been thinking there aren't a lot of books left that are actually worth anything. But! I have been reading quite a few good ones and Wonderstruck is one of them. The characters are great, the story amazing, the concept in credible, and it's all-around an enjoyable read. Selznick did a great job taking two stories and weaving them together so perfectly. His artwork is top notch! I think he has now become one of my most favorite artists as well as author. I think what I love most about him is the fact that he actually goes out of his way to do research on the books he wants to write. Everything about this book is amazing. I highly recommend you check it out. You will not be disappointed!
