Waiting on Wednesday: Storybound

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

Storybound by Marissa Burt
In the land of Story, children go to school to learn to be characters: a perfect Hero, a trusty Sidekick, even the most dastardly Villain. They take classes on Outdoor Experiential Questing and Backstory, while adults search for full-time character work in stories written just for them.

In our world, twelve-year-old Una Fairchild has always felt invisible. But all that changes when she stumbles upon a mysterious book buried deep in the basement of her school library, opens the cover, and suddenly finds herself transported to the magical land of Story.

But Story is not a perfect fairy tale. Una’s new friend Peter warns her about the grave danger she could face if anyone discovers her true identity. The devious Tale Keeper watches her every move. And there are whispers of a deadly secret that seems to revolve around Una herself...

How adorable does this sound? I mean, I have a soft spot for characters named Una ever since being forced to read The Faerie Queen in English Literature this year, but I'm also a softie for stories about stories. And this one seems fantastic!

TIME, and more:
