Kid View: A Path Begins by J.A.White (The Thickety series, book #1)
When I was reading A Path Begins, I kept telling everyone that it was the best book ever. The way the book sucks you into the story and makes you feel as though you are right there with Kara and Taff throughout their life. I love how J.A. White lets your imagination roam free in his fantasy world where you can really imagine what it would be like to be Kara. Without reading the last book, that comes out in April 2017, I would say this is the best one in the Thickety series. I really like how J.A. White creates a very twisted path that Kara and Taff must follow so the plot really keeps you on edge while you turn the pages. This book is for readers 11 and up because it can be a bit creepy at some parts (which I think is a good thing), but I think it is definitely a must-read series. My favorite character in the story is Kara because she is so brave like after all she heard about how bad the Thickety is she still goes in and kindhearted because even after all those people in her village treated her poorly she still stood up for them and kept them safe. Overall I think this book is amazing and that if you are in the middle grades, you should definitely read it.
