The Coles family lived in the grandest bookshop, in 1893. This awe-inspiring book is about two children, Pearl and Valentine Cole. These two courageous children face seven challenges by the Obscurosmith, who made a deal with their Pa. Their Pa risked his life and the Arcade’s. As Pearl and Valentine face the challenges, their memories are being lost along the way. Nearly losing their siblings in the process, they are pressured on winning, because if they fail, they will lose the Arcade and Pa!
I LOVE this book! It has spectacular descriptions and character personalities!
