I absolutely loved this book! It was full of magic and I have never read anything like it before. When a boy finds out that he has the ability to hear voices from photographs, he is forced to go to a boarding school. There are many bad people there, and Charlie Bone must defeat them.

This is a really good book. The ideas are unique – unlike many other fantasy books right now. Charlie Bone is a boy with a very interesting talent. He can hear voices from photographs! He is forced to go to a school full of other gifted students – some in art, some in drama, some in music, and still there are ones like Charlie. He makes friends with these people and they have some wild adventures – all the while trying to find Charlie’s father. You should definitely check this out!
