This book comes across like Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I can see the similarities, but these are are only facile ties, and Crabtree is most definitely not Peregrine. When I got this I did not realize it was YA, silly me, so I had my kids listen to it with me, and they absolutely loved it. My oldest son is a fan of the formerly named series and even he said that he liked this as much if not more.
A little warning, the book does end on a cliffhanger, so don't get your pajamas in a knot when you realize that the story isn't over. Just be happy that there is MORE coming later. The book is set in WWII, and that fits the tale. I don't know if it would work as well in modern day. . . we'll see, who knows what the future holds. The magic works, and the kids are interesting.
Johns does a great job narrating, and we can't wait to hear more of his work in the future.

Just from the start, you know that you will totally enjoy this novel! The story involves a group of children and their teacher/guardian who was born with usually powers and are shunned from society.. yet during the start of WWII, it is their abilities that will make a difference. This is so worth the listening/reading and I look forward to Book 2 and find out what else will happen.
