Publisher's Summary

When Una Fairchild stumbles upon a mysterious book buried deep in the basement of her school library, she thinks nothing of opening the cover and diving in. But instead of paging through a regular novel, Una suddenly finds herself Written In to the land of Story - a world filled with Heroes and Villains and fairy-tale characters.
But not everything in Story is as magical as it seems. Una must figure out why she has been Written In - and fast - before anyone else discovers her secret. Together with her new friend Peter and a talking cat named Sam, Una digs deep into Story's shadowy past. She quickly realizes that she is tied to the world in ways she never could have imagined - and it might be up to her to save it.

Okay story about wandering into a fairy tale

This is a story about a young girl who gets Written In (WI) to the Land of Story. There she has to figure out why she's a WI and who wrote her in.

This is really just the first half of the story. Nothing is resolved and the book ends right in the middle of the story.

The above being said I thought this book was decent but not great. I really enjoyed the idea of characters being written in (it was a like a simplified version of the Thursday Next series). I also enjoyed the idea of characters being type-cast and trained to be the sorts of characters they are assigned to be.

I thought our heroine was extremely abrasive and obnoxious. I also thought the initial description of her as a quiet loner did not at all fit how she acted in Story. There were a few contradictions like that throughout the story.

I also just got kind of bored with it all about halfway through. In the end, even though it ends mid-story, I really wasn't all that curious about what will happen to these characters. As a result, I probably won't read Story's End which ties up this duology.
