Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

This book was amazing. It is technically 2 stories that intertwine at the end. One is Ben’s story which is told in text, the other is Rose’s story, told in drawings. Ben is an orphan, and he is living with his Aunt and Uncle, but when he sees his former house lit up he goes to investigate, what will he find? We see Rose, who doesn’t like her father, but we don’t see her mother, until she goes to New York to find her. I liked this story because it kept me hanging, and both the pictures and the text were very descriptive.
