I loved this book! Although I’d call it fantasy, it has the wonderful, familiar homey-ness of mythology and characters that have the most satisfying, twisty arcs. But what I loved most was the plot! It was fun, exciting, emotional, and very real. Even though the world of Gottika is very different from things I’m familiar with, I could still relate to parts of this book, like wanting siblings, or feeling angry with how the world is. And though those are the main tones I got from this book, I would also recommend it to people who like mystery and realistic/historical fiction, since it’s so well-written that it seems to have bits that fall into all those categories!

I really loved this book it was so so so GOOD!!!!!!!
GOTTIKA: a world divided into The Stoons, the poor, guarded part of this world run by evil, and Gottika, where the rich people live . . . and also Count Pol, the evil mastermind with a horrible backstory. Our main character, Danny, lives in The Stoons, where everyone is forced to wear red hats and will be put in prison for being out on the streets after 9:00pm, among other strict rules. However, despite these terrible circumstances, Danny still lives on. He will have to face betrayal, unkindness, sabotage, and many more things on his adventure. But it all changes when his father illegaly uses magic to summon a Gol from the very earth to protect The Stoons. Along the way he starts to understand the true meanings of life itself. Overall, GREAT book
