In this book we meet Gracie Lockwood, who lives in a world that is not so ordinary. There are dragons, sasquatches, mermaids, and Dark Clouds who come for people when they die. Everything is typical in her life until a Dark Cloud comes for her little brother, Sam. She and her family then set out on an adventurous journey to the Extraordinary World, a safe place where there are no Dark Clouds. Throughout their journey, Gracie and her family have to learn to trust each other more than ever before and accept that the world has more possibilities then they’ve ever imagined. Will they succeed?
The author used a diary format, which allowed me to get into the story and learn what happened each day. I also enjoyed the detailed descriptions that allowed me to live the Lockwood’s adventures.
