    I won this book as a FirstReads giveaway. To be honest and blunt, I struggled with it. I attempted to shift my mindset to that of a youngen and suspend my belief of reality but had a hard time believing an 11 year old would act so mature. I did enjoy how Willa was outspoken, br...

    I received this book for free from goodreads I laughed out loud at many parts of this inventive clever steampunk book. it is pure antasy, fast paced and wonderful to read. I recommend it ...

    I was a Beta-reader for this book. I was supposed to be writing notes and comments in the margins but the book sucked me in so quickly and the pace was so fluid I was suddenly there at the end satisfied - with the edit pen still uncapped. Mr. Due's writing reminds me of a series of pai...

    A wonderfully written and delightful story for middle grade readers. ...

    Willamina Snap is an eleven year old girl who lived in Cambridge Massachusetts. One day, her and her family got taken to Grandeur, a city in a bubble that?s full of crazy things like ?brewed? animal human hybrids, and sentient ?clockwerks? or robots. In Grandeur, there are th...

    Throughly enjoyed the character Willa and the storyline ...

    Potential Review Biases: * I won a free copy of this eBook in a GoodReads giveaway. This book has a lot of things going for it: wacky hijinks, snarky characters, interesting world-building, good-pacing; and yet it just never clicked for me. Probably due to the impossibly cool &...

    ? I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway ? I'm rating this book as a 4.5 out of 5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, however I wanted to feel more excitement. This doesn't deter my feelings at all to read the next book in the series, if anything I'm rather looking forward to ...

    Both my 13-year-old son and I were captivated by Willa Snap, her world, and her adventure. I was hooked at the Table of Contents alone: The Order of the Black Fez, The Tantalizing Ticket, and Villa da Vinci are all book titles in their own right! Willa must adapt quickly to a new life,...

    Rubery Prize Shortlisted 2018 There is plenty to like about this novel. It is full of fun, and clearly the product of a quirky, inventive mind, ideal for children's writing. Willa is a smart, likeable child with no prejudices. She, her genius mother and practical father (no proble...

    I was fascinated by the idea of Idiots vs Geniuses, but quite soon into the book I realised it is more suitable to a younger crowd. The world is beautifully, colorfully and comically depicted, yet the plot and characters are sadly lacking the depth I was looking for. In my head I start...

    Idiot Genius Gather your imagination and sift yourself in for a jaunt in the life of a eleven year old girl who is relocated to a world full of idiots. Nothing like the types we might imagine, but lands where types are living in their own neighborhood of steamworks, windworks and ot...

    I was a little concerned when I first started reading this book. Sure, it's intended for a lot younger audience, but the first chapter was so childish and poorly written I wasn't sure I'd stick with it (that damn cat's name!), however, I'm glad I did. The author has come up with a uniq...

    Spectacularly entertaining! This streamline middle-grade to young adult fantasy was a highly entertaining read. A perfect choice to help expand your vocabulary and increase your curiosity. I especially enjoyed the Flying Wallendas reference, having caught a performance of theirs wit...

    ? I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway ? I'm rating this book as a 4.5 out of 5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, however I wanted to feel more excitement. This doesn't deter my feelings at all to read the next book in the series, if anything I'm rather looking forward to ...

    Both my 13-year-old son and I were captivated by Willa Snap, her world, and her adventure. I was hooked at the Table of Contents alone: The Order of the Black Fez, The Tantalizing Ticket, and Villa da Vinci are all book titles in their own right! Willa must adapt quickly to a new life,...

    Rubery Prize Shortlisted 2018 There is plenty to like about this novel. It is full of fun, and clearly the product of a quirky, inventive mind, ideal for children's writing. Willa is a smart, likeable child with no prejudices. She, her genius mother and practical father (no proble...

    I was fascinated by the idea of Idiots vs Geniuses, but quite soon into the book I realised it is more suitable to a younger crowd. The world is beautifully, colorfully and comically depicted, yet the plot and characters are sadly lacking the depth I was looking for. In my head I start...

    I was a little concerned when I first started reading this book. Sure, it's intended for a lot younger audience, but the first chapter was so childish and poorly written I wasn't sure I'd stick with it (that damn cat's name!), however, I'm glad I did. The author has come up with a uniq...

    Spectacularly entertaining! This streamline middle-grade to young adult fantasy was a highly entertaining read. A perfect choice to help expand your vocabulary and increase your curiosity. I especially enjoyed the Flying Wallendas reference, having caught a performance of theirs wit...

    This was a really fun story. At first, I wasn't sure I would be able to read about an 11 year old protagonist as an adult, but the story was charming and I kept going. As the story truly develops, the main character is very mature and manages to many cool and exciting things. This is...
