Hollow Earth by John Barrowman and Carole E. Barrowman; reviewed by Cecily B.
"Hollow Earth is about 12-year old twins named Matt and Em, who are from present day London , England . A week before the story in the book begins, they figure out that they have magical abilities–that they can bring to life what they draw and travel through art. The twins are being hunted by a group that wants to imprison them. Another group is trying to protect them. I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries and adventure. I liked this book because it was written really well and had a really unique story-line; I especially liked that the kids discovered their powers before the book started. Usually in these kinds of stories, half the book is spent figuring out what their powers are and getting over the fact that they have powers. All that is done here before the book even starts and the kids are fine with the fact that they're magical. Even though the beginning seemed like any other book in this genre, it got much better toward the middle and end. Overall I thought this was a really good story." - Cecily B.
