    1. I decided to read this book completely based on the cover. Isn't it whimsical?! The writing was a bit amateur-ish, and I am, um, shall we say, intrigued, by the possibilities of where this story will go. This is the first in a series, and it has quite a few main characters (with the story jumping between everyone's pov), and lots of details were introduced that may or may not be important to the story in the future. Like Adam's bestie James, lots of background about him but so far does not play [...]

    2. This is an interesting story. Someone sends several young people a book that seems to be filled with gibberish but, bit by bit, they are able to somehow see what the gibberish actually means. This leads then to the discovery of an area bound in trees. They also ends up being able to see very small people (around ten inches high) and a talking tree.Things turn bad when they find a lizard that's a spy and their books begin to go missing. Adding to this is a seemingly crazy man, a cave, near drowni [...]

    3. YA fantasy genre that I downloaded from for free. A group of soon to be high schoolers receive a old book special messengered to their homes and their sur plans soon become entangled in learning the meaning of the tales. Quick read full of suspense. am going to encourage my 11 yo to read over summer break and learn her perspective.

    4. I liked some of these characters, and fantasy is right in my wheelhouse, but sometimes the story felt like it was trying so hard to be profound that the strain was palpable, keeping me from fully entering this world or enjoying the narrative.

    5. So fun!I think it just really makes you want to be there with the characters. I would warn that the writer takes a bit of a chance by trying to convey the Book of Sight to us the readers. So I guess a little leap of faith on our parts, but pretty fun!

    6. A personal note of thanks to Mrs. Deborah Dunlevy who graciously and generously gave me this book in exchange for an honest review. I thank you! ~~~~~ "In a plain house on a dull street in a nondescript neighborhood in a sleepy town near the mountains lived a girl named Alex." Fourteen year old Alex is an average teenage girl beginning her summer vacation. Dad's very preoccupied with work, Mom's no longer in the picture. As Alex is contemplating the summer stretching out before her, a messenger [...]

    7. I downloaded this book on my Kindle because it was free. The genre was fantasy & I don't usually read books like this. It reminded me of the Spider-wick Chronicles. (A book in which I only watched the movie because, like I said, I don't read much fantasy. Harry Potter & Twilight Series are probably the only fantasy I've read since high school. Ha! See! ). Back to the book, I thought it was ok. I gave it 3 stars, though, because it did keep my attention. I was a bit disappointed that it d [...]

    8. Fourteen-year-old Alexandria Jillian Hughes was extremely ordinary. The city of Dunmore was host to her best friend Darcy who would be leaving for the summer to California to see her dad. Alex’s summer started with a mysterious delivery of an antique book. As she delved in she found that it took her all day to read just five pages. Her dad, a writer who surfaces from his projects about every three days, checks in on her. It’s then that she realized reading the book had given her headaches.Al [...]

    9. Fourteen year old Alex is just beginning her summer vacation when a messenger appears on her doorstep with a book. She opens the book and finds nonsense words, that later turn into words that she can read and live. She discovers that four other kids have also received books and not only can they read them, but they actually live and see what they read about. Who knew that there are little creatures roaming around and that other things happen that no one else knows about?As the story progresses, [...]

    10. The Book of Sight by Deborah DunlevyYoung Alex receives a book in an unmarked package, not knowing who it is from or what it is about. As she opens the book she sees that it is just a bunch of gibberish, but soon she discovers she can read it. But what does it mean? As she and her friends try to unravel the mystery of the mysterious book, they embark on a journey of a lifetime.I liked the originality of this book and the characters. Alex is very likable along with her friends. There is adventure [...]

    11. Not going to rate this as I did not finish it. Got about a quarter of the way through and it's NOT a bad book, just not my type of book. Reminded me of trying to read The Hobbit, just something that was not fun for me to read. I tried, I really did! The writing itself is not bad but I can't seem to get into books with fairy-tale creatures. This is my problem, I realize and the reason I am not rating this book. I can picture lots of people (those who enjoy the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings or stuff [...]

    12. Hmmm. How do I put this into words? I would have given this book 2 stars but the story idea made me give it one more star. While I love the idea that there is more to this world than what most see, and only those that recieve (and can read) the Book of Sight can see them, I did't like the writing. It was all over the place and didn't really find its groove until the end. It's almost like I could see what the intended story was supposed to be, but didn't quite make its goal. It did leave off on a [...]

    14. A book about a book? Of course I wanted to read it!!! The story is intriguing enough but the writing lacks something I know it's a YA novel, but it reads really young. It picked up by the end and the writing seemed to flow a bit better so I will probably try the second book to find out what happens.

    15. This was kind of like reading a high school essay. Grammar is awkward, but the story moves along very quickly and teases you enough that you continue reading until the end.

    16. This was a cute story, but not necessarily very well written. I liked the characters and the premise, but it just fell a little flat for me. It's a book that I think my 9 year old would really like.

    17. I agree with the other reviewers. The first book was enough. I don't feel compelled to follow this story through the sequels.

    18. This is more of a casual read, but enjoyable. There is some suspense, but honestly I would like to see more (and on a larger scale).

    19. The book was okay. Nothing was particularly bothersome but I didn't feel compelled to finish reading the book or the next book in the series.
