Woundabout

Cover: 'Woundabout'

Staff Review: "Woundabout" by Lev A. C. Rosen, Ellis Rosen

★★★★

After their parents’ deaths from an explosion at their ranch, Connor, Cordelia and Kip, their pet capybara, are sent to live with their aunt Marigold in the town of Woundabout. They discover that it is an odd city where routine and conformity rule and nothing ever changes. To maintain the status quo the mayor allows very few children to live there since they could cause change. With their friend Nico, a boy from a neighboring town, Connor and Cordelia uncover a mysterious huge, hidden crank which could threaten the town’s way of life. This is a fun read for tweens with interesting characters and an unusual pet.

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction
