Time Stoppers by Carrie Jones
This is a fun middle grade fantasy book. Twelve year olds Annie Nobody, who has been bounced from foster home to foster home and Jamie, whose father and grandmother treat him cruelly and threaten to eat him, are brought together in an adventure to save a magical town where they both may finally fit in and have a welcoming place to live. After all, Annie is supposed to have magical powers and Jamie might or might not turn into a troll. They just have to be brave and resourceful. Luckily, they have the help of Eva, an heroic dwarf, Bloom, an elf and a magical dog. Together, they must make some magic and defeat evil. This is the first book in a new series and I think kids will enjoy it. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
