    “Anne has been an orphan living a depressing life at the St. Lupin’s Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children for almost 13 years. Middle-school readers, many of whom have read Harry Potter, will like the adventures and fast-paced action that takes place in this story.”

    Kathy Taber, Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore (Indianapolis, IN)

    “With her 13th birthday nearing, Anne is about to have freedom for the first time. She will no longer be under Matron’s control at St. Lupin’s Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children, but Matron is trying to prevent her from leaving and Anne discovers she has a much bigger destiny ahead of her. She is accepted as a student at Death Mountain Quest Academy and, with the help of her best friend Penelope and fellow academy student Hiro, she must complete an epic quest in four days. If they succeed, Anne will become the ruler of a kingdom, but if they fail they will be considered traitors and be imprisoned for the rest of their lives. Filled with intrigue and suspense, once you start reading The Adventurer’s Guide to Successful Escapes you will have to keep going until the end.”
