Description

The New York Times bestselling author of the Wake trilogy makes her middle-grade dystopian fantasy debut! When Alex finds out he is Unwanted, he expects to die. That is the way of the people of Quill: Each year all the thirteen-year-olds are labeled as Wanted, Necessary, or Unwanted. Wanteds get more schooling and train to join the Quillitary. Necessaries keep the farms running. Unwanteds are set for elimination. It's hard for Alex to leave behind his twin, Aaron, a Wanted, but he makes peace with his fate-until he discovers that instead of a "death farm," what awaits him is a magical place called ArtimE. There, Alex and his fellow Unwanteds are encouraged to cultivate their creative abilities and use them magically. Everything Alex has ever known changes before his eyes, and it's a wondrous transformation. But it's a rare, unique occurrence for twins to be divided 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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Simon Jones expertly takes on the world of Quill, in which teenagers are classified as "Wanted" or "Unwanted" and expected to refrain from showing any emotion or creativity. Jones's deliberate pacing builds tension as twin brothers Alex (Unwanted) and Aaron (Wanted) await the yearly "elimination" of the Unwanteds. Jones's characterizations--from the scared, conflicted Alex and the cold, confident Aaron to the various members of this secret magical world--are a big part of the mesmerizing effect of this story. His skilled storytelling ability makes each twist and turn compelling as the brothers find themselves in a battle--in which they must fight each other. E.A.B. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
