Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This book is magical and malicious. It puts a dark twist on the dreams of the young and the beauty that magic can create. Scarlett and Tella are sisters trapped on an island by their abusive and controlling father. For years Scarlett has been writing to Legend, hoping to get an invitation to his magical Caraval. She wants to experience the magic and hopes to free herself and her sister from their father. As a child she believed in the innocent, but after protecting Tella from their father for so long, Scarlett no longer believes in magic. But, days before Scarlett’s arranged marriage, an invitation arrives in the mail and Scarlett is once again confronted with her childhood wishes and the fear of her father. She is especially afraid of ruining her arranged marriage, which is how she plans to get off the island and out of the control of her father. This book creates a whole new world that anyone can fall into, everything about it is so original. This reminds me of a darker version of Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi because of the way that everything is described. All the senses are mixed up and the descriptions are very rich. The magic of this book is so enchanting and makes it hard to put down. This book truly transports the reader into the story by turning around any sense of reality they have. The characters each have their own flaws and make the story thrilling, sad and relatable . There is nothing superficial in this book and it makes for an excellent and dark adventure.
