Cathedral of Bones

Written by A. J. Steiger

This book is a fantastic choice for Harry Potter fans!

Full of elements of magic, twisted otherworldly creatures, and political intrigue, this story has proven to be an absolutely engaging, meaningful, and exciting fantasy-adventure. It will easily keep a student interested with its action-packed storyline as well as teach them a few meaningful lessons about gaining confidence in one’s own abilities as well as nurturing the knowledge that even through hardship and failures, imperfect family members and tragedy, we can still not only survive but find a way to thrive through life and make meaningful connections along the way.

I would definitely recommend this book to all libraries as part of their collection, and students who are struggling with their own self-doubt, rocky familial connections, and struggles with the norms of society. Sometimes a well-written book crosses a young person’s path that gives life a special meaning to them and I believe this book belongs in that very category.
