The Marvels is a book about a young boy, Billy Marvel, surviving in a shipwreck. Later on, he finds work in a theater with many generations of a family of actors. Joseph Jervis runs away form boarding school in 1990 and comes to dark and snowy London looking for Link, his dog, and his uncle. I made a connection to this book of another book I did a review on, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. I read this book after reading the Invention of Hugo Cabret and I am not sure what book I love more. The author's way of writing these books is the way that gets me excited to pick up another book written by him and start reading it. I rated this book four stars, because it got confusing when they switched from Billy to Joseph but later on it started to come together.
