Review of Leisl and Po by Lauren Oliver
Harper Collins Oct 2011 9780062014511
Liesl and Po is a marvellous book that flows through each exciting event like a river of words. The impassive characters have unique personalities and work well as a team, although the task given to them wasn't very easy. Liesl ends up on an extraordinary journey , but then realises that what she thought she'd been carrying had been accidentally switched: the person who it was supposed to be delivered to ends up with something unquestionably less remarkable than expected. This book transfixes people to the pages and makes them absolutely spellbound.
