Horn Book Review

When Emma finds a book that makes everything written in it come true, she uncovers a mystery involving a faun born hundreds of years earlier. Darcy, Emma's arrogant, handsome love interest, is searching for his sister, whose disappearance is tied to the book. Connections to Jane Austen's novels and to fairy tales provide emotional resonance in this unpredictable fantasy. (c) Copyright 2018.
