Book: On The Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson, Waterbrook Press, 2008
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness: Adventure. Peril. Lost Jewels. And the Fearsome Toothy Cows of Skree. (The Wingfeather Saga) 
Genre: Fantasy
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 12+
Summary: "
Adventure. Peril. Lost Jewels. And the Fearsome Toothy Cows of Skree" is actually a subtitle of the book. The Igiby children must overcome great danger in order to discover who they really are and where the lost jewels are as well as why their mother and grandfather are risking their lives for these jewels.
Notes: This book reads like a classic, or maybe more like a reference book. The author makes all these awesome footnotes referencing other things of his imagination. He explains history and culture and uses imaginary references as his sources for these! It makes the book feel real even though it's filled with fanciful elements! This book is fun, exciting, and even thought provoking! I highly recommend it!

You should review Looking for Alaska by John Green. It has really deep Christian themes and is amazing.
