ABOUT THIS BOOK

Tom has spent most of his life locked behind the cruel walls of walls of Weatherly Orphanage, but when he learns that his parents might still be alive, Tom knows he must do what he can to find them. He can’t leave Weatherly without his best friend Sarah, so armed with a single clue to his past, the word Britfield, the two make a daring escape by commandeering a hot air balloon. Now they’re on the run from a famous Scotland Yard detective and what looks like half the police officers in England. Tom and Sarah’s journey takes them from Oxford University to Windsor Castle, through London, and finally to Canterbury. Along the way, they discover that Tom may be the true heir to the British throne, but even with the help of two brilliant professors, it looks like Tom and Sarah will be captured and sent back to the orphanage before they have a chance to solve Tom’s Royal mystery.images.jpeg.jpg

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I usually don’t read a lot of YA books, but this one sounded interesting and since I love beautiful and interesting book covers, this one drew me in. The first few chapters are not so appealing, as they talk about the orphanage Tom has lived in n most of his life. But when he finds out his parents may be alive, the exciting journey begins. And all Tom can remember is Britfield. But back at the orphanage, things are in an uproar and they must find the two runaways asap.

This is a story you will not soon forget. I enjoyed the trip around England with these two characters, with a few twists and turns along the way. And sometimes it was a bit more scary than fun, but that’s the beauty of a well written book because it make you want to keep reading. I grew to love Tom and Sarah, and was wanting to do whatever I could to help them, but it being a book, I couldn’t, sigh. A lot of other characters popped up in this book, with all of Tom and Sarah’s travels, they met a lot of people. And some were likeable, some we not! But they all fit so well as they told this story, each character was needed to finish this story.

If you have tweens and teens, this is a book I highly recommend. Some have even suggested reading this to your younger children, which is a fantastic idea!

A copy of this book was given to me by the author or publisher. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions here in this review are totally mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
