Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy Book Review

  • Print

Scientifically minded Ophelia Jane Worthington-Whittard believes in facts. Only interested in what can be proven, she doesn’t know what to think when she meets a boy with no name locked in a room in her father’s museum. He claims to be sent by wizards from another world to stop the Snow Queen. Even worse, he asks her to help him escape and find the sword that will end the queen’s life. What’s a practical girl to do? Little by little, Ophelia becomes involved in the battle between good and evil, risking everything and learning to trust the voice inside her that urges her to believe.

Lovers of fantasy and fairy tales will enjoy this modern retelling of the classic tale of the Snow Queen. Themes of courage, grieving, trusting your instincts and thinking for yourself make Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy a book worth reading.
