The Bell Between Worlds

The Bell Between Worlds - Ian  Johnstone

There's nothing particularly wrong with The Bell Between Worlds at all - other than a tendency to over-describe, which is not unusual, and the fact that it starts off incredibly derivative (it does get more original as the plot moves on) - I simply think that there are children's books that transcend genre and age, and ones that don't. This is the latter. My ten-year-younger self would have absolutely adored this book, though, especially the take on mirror selves and the ravel runes. Infinitely better than anything like City of Bones.
