But not everything in Story is as magical as it seems. Una must figure out why she has been Written In - and fast - before anyone else discovers her secret.

    "Okay story about wandering into a fairy tale"

    This is a story about a young girl who gets Written In (WI) to the Land of Story. There she has to figure out why she's a WI and who wrote her in.

    This is really just the first half of the story. Nothing is resolved and the book ends right in the middle of the story.

    The above being said I thought this book was decent but not great. I really enjoyed the idea of characters being written in (it was a like a simplified version of the Thursday Next series). I also enjoyed the idea of characters being type-cast and trained to be the sorts of characters they are assigned to be.

    I thought our heroine was extremely abrasive and obnoxious. I also thought the initial description of her as a quiet loner did not at all fit how she acted in Story. There were a few contradictions like that throughout the story.

    I also just got kind of bored with it all about halfway through. In the end, even though it ends mid-story, I really wasn't all that curious about what will happen to these characters. As a result, I probably won't read Story's End which ties up this duology.

    What did you love best about Storybound?

    It was fun and engaging.


    What about Elizabeth Evans’s performance did you like?

    It was easy to tell who the different characters were just by her voice.
