Publisher's Summary

The first installment of the international best-selling series from Jenny Nimmo starring Charlie Bone.
An academy for magic and special talents. A destiny unfulfilled. A secret legacy.
Since his father died, Charlie Bone has lived with his mother and her mother in the house of his other grandmother, Grandma Bone. Looking at a picture of a couple with a baby and a cat, he suddenly discovers he can hear their voices.
Although he tries to hide his new gift, Grandma Bone and her scary sisters soon find out and send him to Bloor's Academy. Charlie quickly finds life at Bloor's pretty tough, with its strict rules and the malevolent head boy, Manfred, set against him.
When Charlie discovers that the child in the photograph is being held, hypnotised, against her will, he and his new friends with 'gifts' try to awaken her. But can they overcome Manfred's sinister hypnotic gifts?

I am so excited to have been introduced to this series by my 10 year old niece. Everything you need is there, evocative, magic, human connections to one another and animals.....

Mediocre at best.

Underwhelming, lackluster, and mediocre. Not without a few good punches though. But I won't be finishing the series. The narrator did a good job though.
