Beatrice Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.
She's not an orphan, but she has no parents.
She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.
Until now.

Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the characters of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book--an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family--and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
Taschima's POV:
This is my very first ARC copy Ive ever gotten to review, and by the looks of it we're off to a good start. Bertie is a kick-ass main character that lives in the Theatre Illuinata with friends and family, only thing is that she is an orphan and causes more trouble than good. With her last stunt the theatre manager decides to kick her out unless she can find some "invaluable way" to contribute. With this in mind our heroin sets off on an adventure that not even herself could have though possible along with her friends Nate, Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth and Mustarseed.

In a world were friends might be enemies, and enemies might be friends, Beatrice must fight against all odds and find whats hidden behind the curtain, the truth.

When I think about this book specific words like charming, enchanting, and exciting come to mind. This is a wonderful start to a great series, with an amazing plot and even greater characters. Lisa Mantchev has created a world full of wonders that lets you wishing you could just dive to it and never come up for air.

A standing ovation, bravo Lisa, Bravo.
