I'm going to share a story rather than review this. A while back, I took my niece and nephew to the last hour of the local library book sale, where for just $2 you could take home a bag full of books. I browsed with them, since the YA books were in the same section. I picked up A Northern Light
, hoping to impart a little bit of literary knowledge. I told them, "Guys, when you see a book with a medal like this on it, read it. This means it's a good book."
Luckily, my advice was correct because this is an excellent book!
