The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens

Kate, Michael and Emma are orphans that get expelled from every orphanage that they stay at. That is until the next orphanage in Cambridge Falls, which is run by a wizard called Dr. Pym. They absentmindedly put a photo into a blank green book that they find. They suddenly get sent back to an older Cambridge Falls. They find out that the town is run by the countess and an army of screechers-after the same book that they found. They meet a man named Gabriel who helps them escape from the countess' grasp. They meet up with Dr. Pym who tells them that they have to thwart the countess' plans before it is too late.
     The Emerald Atlas is an awesome book. It starts off with hair-pulling suspense and ends with more. John
creates a book sure to leave fans wanting for a sequel. My favorite thing about the book is the writing style,
which is similar to Lemony Snickett's. I recommend this magic book to anyone.
