In The Marvels, you find yourself on the edge of your seat no matter where you are in the story. All the twist and turns in the plot was probably what I liked the most. The biggest twist was so genius of the author to incorporate into the story that your mind is actually blown. The twist itself was something I would change. I think that it was what the author was going for though. The ending itself was amazing. It was satisfying in all ways. The Marvels was a touching story that showed that family was surprising, and you never can predict when you will have a new member added to it. This whimsical story will get you gasping, laughing, and feeling close to tears, happy and sad. I would recommend this book to all lovers of the famous Invention of Hugo Cabret, and Wonderstruck.
