Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

Reviewed by Savannah

Ophelia is a little girl who is in doubt. Anything she can't prove is dismissed. Her family is grieving the loss of their mother and their father has just taken a new job as Curator of Rare Swords in a museum. Ophelia spends her days exploring until she finds a little boy locked in a room. She listens as he tells a tale of sorrow and warns her of the Snow Queen. Ophelia then begins to try to rescue the boy, and is tested in her belief that everything is concrete. This is a remarkable tale that has a magic element similar to Harry Potter, but delights every reader looking for some adventure. I loved the book and would recommend it to anyone.
