Excellent book! The story line was fresh and I've never read anything like it before. The Clock Island Adventures are an awesome series that this book revolves around. I think this might be Meg Shaffer's first book and if so I can't wait to read more from her.

I can see that they were trying for a Miss Honey and Matilda vibe but it just gave me the ick and Lucy was being overly critical of his current foster placement and was also being completely irrational in regards to her financial and living arrangements in regards to being a foster herself. This was not for me.

Lucy didn’t have a wonderful childhood, but she found some solace in a wonderful series of books for children. She even ran away to the island where her beloved author lived. Now, years later, Lucy is a teacher’s aid, and has come to love a little boy in her class whose parents have died. She wants to foster him, a prelude to adoption, but she doesn’t qualify. She needs a home, more income, and a car. She needs money. In a miraculous turn of events, she and three others have been invited to the island of the famous author, in the hopes of winning a contest. The prize? His latest novel, which will be worth enough money to make her dream come true. Is it too much to wish for, or will her wish come true? This novel is quite clever, with its riddles and twists along the way. The characters are endearing, and even the competitors in the contest are likable. And it even has a lesson in the end. You may not get what you wished for, you may get something even better. Intriguing and entertaining, this well-written book is highly recommended.… (mer)
