I reviewed The Unwanteds by McMann, Lisa. I read the first book and it was pretty good. The book said that the book is kinda like Harry Potter meets the Hunger Games. I also am trying to finish the Harry Potter books. The Unwanteds is about a boy named Aaron that is sorted into a group. He gets sorted in the unwanteds or the wanteds.
You should try reading the book. It’s really good.

This book is awesome! It is very adventurous and full of action and is great for people who are into magic and adventure. Alex is a thirteen-year-old boy who’s life is about to come to an end when a sorcerer saves him and takes him to another world where he learns many spells and magic. All is well until the lord finds out about this secret world. Can Alex save himself– and his world– before it’s too late? Read The Unwanteds to find out!
