Snow Globe Travelers by K.A. Cummins


Book Description:

A mysterious snow globe shop. A multiverse at war. And a stranded Austrian girl searching for her father.

In the heart of Vienna, twelve-year-old Sarah Ann Reisende wanders into a mysterious shop where snow globes double as portals to other worlds. After breaking the globe tethered to Earth, she discovers a cryptic note scribbled on the back of a photograph. The note links her father, who left before her third birthday, to a place called Elohi. Could this be a chance to find her father at last?

Unable to return home, Sarah follows the lead into the world of Elohi. But an army of vicious hybrids led by a genetically engineered warrior named Malvine now rules the once peaceful planet, and she becomes a target as Malvine wants to use the shop’s connections to wage war.

Can Sarah uncover the truth behind her father leaving and find a way home before Malvine gains control of the shop?

My Thoughts:
This was a cool book.  I read it in one night and I'm certain my 2 oldest kids will love it (10 & 12).  The author does a good job of making a new world, but not too different that you can't understand what is going on.  It is quirky and unique.
I love stories that I can give to my kids and teach them something positive.  Sarah is a good kid that's the center of this all.  Her story was just great.  I liked that she messed up, but she wanted to fix her mistake and make it all right.  The author really does do well keeping you engaged from start to finish.  It was great.
It was a 5/5 for me.  I will be watching for more from this author.
