Story Thieves is an adventurous novel about Bethany and Owen who are on a mission to find Bethany's dad. They go through many obstacles and adventures throughout the entire story. You will find yourself not being able to put the book down because the plot is like you have never read before. I give this book five stars because it is a story that anyone can get in to. ( )

"Story Thieves" by James Riley is a fantasy fiction book that is an interesting read for children. When the book opened in a classroom with Owen talking negatively in his head and then about the girl, Bethany, I thought I knew where this book was going. My first impression was that this would be another typical one. That made me question why so many chapters. I thought Owen would be this little nerdy kid that would bug others. I thought Bethany would be this snobby little girl who mistreats everyone. I figured they would have this typical experience where one or both would get in trouble and learn from their experiences. It was not until after I read further and learned of Bethany’s powers, that I became a little more interested. I was even more interested after Bethany shared her past and her motives for jumping from book to book. I became curious and could not wait to read more. Once Owen pulled his little stunt and broke the rules, the took on another meaning for me and I lost a big part of wanting to continue reading. The book began appearing to be another typical story that children read all the time. It was so usual to read the save the day type of story with wizards, villains, and magic.

Overall, I was not impressed with the book in its entirety. I did not like the usual story line. There was nothing exciting about the characters coming out of the book and having to get them back in. The way she found out about her father did not pack a punch with me at the end. I just knew he would be somewhere lost in a book.

On the other hand, I did like the time traveling parts of the book. I loved the story about her losing her father and having to search for him. That is what kept me wanting to read the book. I wanted to know what happened to her father and if she would find him safe. Would he be younger or older and what was his life like while away? Wondering how he was going to be found in this kind of story is what sparked my interest.

Although it did not do much for me, I still would recommend the book to some of my students. I would recommend it to those who rarely read or are first time chapter book readers. I would not recommend it to those who are already book readers because they may find the book boring. They may be looking for more than the usual in their reading experiences. With that being said, I would rate this book a 3 star book. ( )

Introduction: Story Thieves, written by James Riley, is about a boy named Owen who meets a girl named Bethany who can jump into books. Published by Aladdin, ISBN 978-1-4814-0920-9, it is a book full of suspense and adventure.
Character: Owen is a boy who just wants some adventure in his life. When he meets the other character in the book, Bethany, he doesn’t understand how much adventure he is actually about to get himself into. In Chapter 5, Owen states “all he wanted to do was perform an amazing, heroic, lifesaving, awesome act of goodness” (Riley, 39). Bethany was a girl who was half fictional and half real. She spent her days jumping into books trying to find her father. She always played it safe and set out rules. When she was allowing Owen to come help her, she even set out rules for him. She told him “these are my rules for you. If you want to come, you follow them. Got it?” (Riley, 45).
Theme/Plot: The theme of Story of Thieves is all about coming of age. Throughout the book, you follow along with the two characters and watch them grow and mature through the adventures that they go on.
Author: James Riley is the author of Story Thieves. He wrote a total of five books in this series. He also wrote Half Upon a Time which is a three book series, and Revenge of Magic which is a three book series as well.
Summary: Owen meets a girl named Bethany and finds out that she can jump in and out of books. He gets really excited and decides to trick her into letting him jump into his favorite book so he can save someone and become a hero. Upon doing so, a whole series of events unravels that makes him wish he listened to Bethany’s warnings. The rest of the book consists of Owen and Bethany trying to fix the mess that he started.
Mississippi Magnolia Award: The Mississippi Magnolia Award is given to books that is voted on by the students. It is broken down into four categories: Pre-K through 2nd, 3rd through 5th, 6th through 8th, and 9h through 12th. The students from each of the categories vote on a book that they read that they think should receive the award. It is easy to see why Story Thieves would be a winner of this award. It is a great book for middle school aged children. It has a very interesting and suspenseful plot that makes you want to keep reading to see what will happen next. It also lets the readers imagine a world that made jumping into their favorite books possible. ( )

James Riley was born in 1977in Connecticut. He is a known author and American Novelist who is super famous from this book. This story has three different settings; Owen and Bethany's school, Jonathon Porterhouse's house, and in the seventh Kiel Gnomefoot book. The plot is that Owen and Bethany are in a library. Bethany tells Owen that she is a fictional character who can travel books and he was intrigued; so they made a deal and Owen jumped in the book with her. Owen started talking to other characters like he was told not to so the Magister found out about him and Owen stole some of Bethany's powers. Owen has to pretend to be Kiel because kids are reading Gnomefoot series. They have to defeat Dr. Verity because that is what the series is about. The story goes on with Bethany and Owen going through other adventures. The theme is Good vs. Evil. The author uses protagonists and antagonists in the book. The summary of this book is Owen finds out that his friend Bethany can "book jump" and he wants to enter the Kiel Gnomefoot series. Bethany allows him to come with him on her search for her father who disappeared in a book when she was a young girl. Two quotes that provide evidence for my comments are "I knew that there was something like this out there, because if there wasn't, then life is just dental floss and vegetables and word problems. That can't be everything." - Owen. Another is "It's all just the product of someone's imagination, a writer, an author, his name is Jonathan Porterhouse. He made you all up. You don't really exist." - Owen.
