More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.

As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students learn the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing—kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery—one that will change Rithmatics—and their world—forever.

My Thoughts: 

OhmygoshOhmygoshOhmygosh!!!! I LOVED this book so SOOOOO much!!!!! Ahhhhhh!!!! Okay, now that I am done fangirling about how awesome this book is, I need to now express to you why YOU NEED to read this book. I think that you would really enjoy this book if you enjoy math. It causes you to think in a way that makes you feel smart and I personally, love books that do that. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that I didn't put down this book. I read ALL 353 pages at once and it was fantastic. It took me about 6 hours but that's only because I'm a really fast reader. So yeah. You need to read this.
