2012 Book Rave contender – Wonderstruck

Another pièce de résistance from Selznick. This text and picture combo, reminiscent of The Invention of Hugo Cabret in its layout style, is completely unique in story. Is it Rave worthy? Let us know in the comments!

Here’s the blurb:

Having lost his mother and his hearing in a short time, twelve-year-old Ben leaves his Minnesota home in 1977 to seek the father he never knew in New York City, and meets there Rose, who is also longing for something missing from her life. Ben’s story is told in words; Rose’s in pictures.
