Gracie Lockwood is a spirited twelve-year-old girl living in a world where sasquatches, dragons, giants, and mermaids are common. When a Dark Cloud comes looking for her little brother, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: the Extraordinary World, a world very similar to our world.
This book answers the question, “What would the world be like if everything magical and mythical were real?” This world is so full of wonder and fantastic creatures, a world that people would dream of going to in most books, but to the people in this book, it’s all just normal.
This author has created such a magical world with so much detail it’s insane. She came up with everything.
This world is so much different from ours. It’s like a weird alternate reality version of our world. It reminds me of something that was said on the show ‘The Flash” on The CW, about the theory of the multiverse. The theory is that there are multiple versions of the earth, like one where John F. Kennedy was never assassinated or one where we’re all evil. Or in the case of this book, many things are different. All the creatures and monsters beyond our wildest imagination are just a part of everyday life. And our earth is the fantasy. How weird is that?
The weirdest part was all of the product placements. Seriously almost every snack food and fast food restaurant you can think of is mentioned at some point.
