Great book, this one is by the same author who wrote The Invention of Hugo Cabret, and the illustrations are as magnificent as they were in that book! This story follows two teenagers, set 50 years and thousands of miles apart. Their stories are somehow connected, but I will leave you to figure out how! We first meet Ben, in Minnesota 1977, who's mother just died and Ben is left to cope with that loss. We meet, Rose, in New York 1927, who is obsessed with a silent-film actress and makes a scrapbook of her. The two stories are set so far apart but by the end of the story, you find out what the importance is between the two! If you enjoyed Hugo and/or you enjoy highly detailed pencil drawings, check out this book!
