Side characters can be heroes too in this charming and fast-paced adventure that is The Land of Stories meets The Phantom Tollbooth!

Indira has been a character-in-waiting her entire life. So she can't believe her luck when she's finally chosen to travel to Fable and study at the renowned Protagonist Preparatory, a school known for producing the best heroes.

But Indira's dreams of achieving hero status don't exactly go as planned. A failed audition lands her in the school's side-character track, and her best efforts to prove advisors--famous characters like Alice from Wonderland and Professor Darcy--wrong are constantly sabotaged. Indira is starting to feel like an evil antagonist might be to blame.

As the danger spreads, Indira discovers all of Fable is under siege. With her friends Maxi and Phoenix by her side, she pieces together clues that will reveal who is behind the dark magic threatening them all. But the more Indira uncovers, the more doubt she feels about her place in this world of stories. After all, can a side character really save the day?
 


My thoughts
Would I recommend it? yes
Will I be going one with the series? yes
Would I read more by this author? yes
This is the four book by this author I've read and have liked ,while his other books of been young adult and this is one is middle grade it can be read by anyone , and the story itself is very different from any other middle grade book I've read, noted I don't read that much middle grade to begin with but this one is  unique because it's told in a way where the story itself is talking to you the reader.And as your read it you find out that that everything about books has literally come to life, and I do mean everything, and the characters wow just wow some of them are out there even for been book characters , And in the story you meet some of Indira's teachers like Alice from Alice In Wonderland , Professor Darcy just to name a few. And other characters that are just as crazy . With that said I want to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
