Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where she learned—among other things—that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She’s studied art, screenwriting, and film production, but she realized her real passion was writing stories for children. She’s the New York Times and USA Today-bestselling author of the award-winning middle grade series, Keeper of the Lost Cities, as well as the Sky Fall series for young adults. Her books have been featured on multiple state reading lists, published in numerous countries, and translated into many different languages. She lives in Southern California with an embarrassing number of cats.
My daughters and I are reading the books together. We just started and my oldest old me she was going to take the book with her and read ahead. I really wanted to read it with her because I also found the story very good.
I love how Messenger keeps us in suspense from chapter to chapter. Her books make it tough to put the book down. Times flies by really fast when we start reading her books. The books are recommended for ages 8 to 12. I would have to say that my youngest daughter is also enjoying the books.
