Review: Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy by Karen Foxlee

Tuesday, January 28, 2014
Why I chose this book: I  discovered this book while perusing net galley, and couldn't resist the charm that I found in-between the lines of the synopsis. Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard is a girl that stumbles upon an adventure inside a museum. What is not to love? It also had a cover that resembled a mixture of The Series of Unfortunate Events and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making; both books I love. I simply had to give this book a try.

Unlikely heroine Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard doesn't believe in anything that can't be proven by science. She and her sister Alice are still grieving for their dead mother when their father takes a job in a strange museum in a city where it always snows. On her very first day in the museum Ophelia discovers a boy locked away in a long forgotten room. He is a prisoner of Her Majesty the Snow Queen. And he has been waiting for Ophelia's help.

A story within a story, this a modern day fairytale is about the power of friendship, courage and love, and never ever giving up. (Goodreads)
