Every year in Quill, thirteen-year-olds are sorted into categories: the strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university, and the artistic Unwanteds are sent to their deaths. Thirteen-year-old Alex tries his hardest to be stoic when his fate is announced as Unwanted, even while leaving behind his twin, Aaron, a Wanted. Upon arrival at the destination where he expected to be eliminated, however, Alex discovers a stunning secret--behind the mirage of the "death farm" there is instead a place called Artime. In Artime, each child is taught to cultivate their creative abilities and learn how to use them magically, weaving spells through paintbrushes and musical instruments. Everything Alex has ever known changes before his eyes, and it's a wondrous transformation. But it's a rare, unique occurence for twins to be separated between Wanted and Unwanted, and as Alex and Aaron's bond stretches across their separation, a threat arises for the survival of Artime that will pit brother against brother in an ultimate, magical battle.
 A few words to describe Lisa McMann's The Unwanteds: whimsical, funny, creative, original, genius.  Read Austin's full review here!

  6. Thankyou for the chance to win an audio book. sometimes people don't understand how hard it is to hold a book an read one, I am disabled and holding my head down to read leaves me with such unbearable pain and for awhile i had to stop reading. Then to hold one for a long puts these cramps so bad in my hands. Now i have the kindle Fire my children gave me and it helps alot. I guess audiobooks work with the Kindle fire i don't know but i will find out thanks again Joannie. GOODLUCK EVERYONE!!!
