This is one of the best books I've ever read. I got addicted to the series on page one. All the Elwin visits make the book super funny. Shannon Messenger gave the book a lot of depth and everything it needs to make it amazing. Go Sophie!!!!!!!!!!

this is a wonderful book with adventure, humor, and a little romance- without the overly quick-moving romance that often takes over a book's plot. lots of action, without comprimising on the more quiet parts of a book. loved it.

Keeper of the Lost Cities is my all-time favorite book series because it is so fast-paced, clever, action-packed, and has such complicated characters that are so well-developed that they just jump off of the page. It has such depth and plot, I was just hanging on to every word and turning the pages so hard and so fast and so frantically I was trying not to shred the poor book. The plot twists are so unexpected, I just fall to the ground crying, laughing, screaming, or having a heart attack from shock. Reading this book is a test of emotional and mental stability. I also like how it doesn't have ANY inappropriate sexual content, or ANY political agenda, or ANY bad language at all whatsoever. Such a great read, such an amazing series!!! Probably the best book series that I've ever read before in my life, right up there with Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.

I am a devoted Keeper fan and am waiting for the next book to come out this fall!!!

PS. GO TEAM FOSTER-KEEFE!

This is an incredible book!!! I can't believe this is very well known! I read this within a couple hours and put the next couple books in the series on hold. In my opinion this book could beat Harry Potter and Percy Jackson any day. Can't wait to read book 2!

"Okay" she agreed. If he refused to be serious, so would she. "Fine. I'm an elf. Am I supposed to help Frodo destroy the ring and save Middle-earth? Or do I have to make toys for the North Pole?" - Sophie Foster

Sophie foster is a 12 year who is in high school. She's never fit in at school or at home. But that all changes when she meets a smart (and super cute) boy who takes her to a place with people just like her. She quickly makes friends. But even a perfect world has it's faults...

white_bird_77 Jun 16, 2016

Sophie Foster, a 12-year-old high school senior, is hated by her classmates. She never really belonged or fit in anywhere…until a mysterious boy arrives and shows her that there's a place where she belongs. Suddenly her whole life changes. But just because she belongs doesn't mean that everyone likes her. It also doesn't mean that she's so safe, either…

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.
