INGO was a book I picked up partly because the cover drew me in. In this case you can judge a book by its cover. I found INGO to be very easy to follow and the characters were described so vividly it felt like you grew up with them. I live in a seaside town and I really loved that this book took place near the sea, it made me feel very at home. I found that when I read this book I was so intrigued that I did not notice the words, I only saw the picture that the words painted in my minds eye.
This book is about a girl and her older brother. The live in a seaside town somewhere in Europe and regularly swim in a cove near their house. One night their father goes out on his boat... and fails to come back. When they return to the cove they stumble upon a world that know one dared imagine existed, it is called INGO. Refusing to think that their father has drowned while at sea they set out on a quest to find their missing father in INGO.
Another thing that I liked about this book was that there were no pictures and the author did not describe the characters physically, that way you can picture them however you want, not with someone else's vision of a character blocking your mind.
I hope that this review will make you want to read INGO. Trust me, its defiantly worth it.
