Goodreads Summary

Twelve-year-old Gracie Freeman is living a normal life, but she is haunted by the fact that she is actually a character from a story, an unpublished fairy tale she’s never read. When she was a baby, her parents learned that she was supposed to die in the story, and with the help of a magic book, took her out of the story, and into the outside world, where she could be safe.

Guess who read a children fiction after a long time and got blown away!!!!!

I just loved this book so much. To the point of shreaking.

The cover (heart eyes) .. the cover was the first thing to catch my eyes. And the story was small and a fast read.

The story has actually ended with a cliffhanger. But there is no details describing if its a series.

So …. Lets get into business.

The story begins and travels in the perspective of Gracie freeman , 12 year old who is having dreams with fire and a mysterious past. Her mother doesn’t discuss about her past and her father. Sounds like almost every other middle grade fantasy.. isn’t it?

What makes this book different and special from the others?

Lemme tell you.

Gracie may live next door to you. She has no powers , no special abilities. She faces all her problems with just her. This is the one thing makes her special. She decides her destiny.


  • Gracie , 12 year old is a dreamer.
  • Walter , 12 year old is Gracie’s friend , a science nerd and thinks stories and dreams are rubbish.
  • Queen Cassandra is a mysterious beautiful woman she has been dreaming .
  • Getrude Winters is the author of the unfinished book who is a really interesting character.

Gracie is totally relatable . The awkward , ungrateful 12 year old us.

The writing is a real page turner.

Bondoff is described beautiful , but the description wasn’t enough.

The plot is great , fantasy children’s fiction and all , but it certainly lacks adventure. Which might’ve been better.

Overall , Unwritten was a good read for me. I hope you will enjoy it too.

This book is recommended to

  • Children fiction
  • Children fantasy

Happy living
