Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians (Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians)

Brandon Sanderson
Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians is the first action-packed fantasy adventure in the Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians series for young readers by the #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson. These fast-paced and funny novels are now available in deluxe hardcover editions illustrated by Hayley Lazo. On his thirteenth birthday, foster child Alcatraz Smedry gets a bag of sand in the mail-his only inheritance from his father and mother. He soon learns that this is no ordinary bag of sand. It is quickly stolen by the cult of evil Librarians who are taking over the world by spreading misinformation and suppressing truth. Alcatraz must stop them, using the only weapon he has: an incredible talent for breaking things. "In this original, hysterical homage to fantasy literature, Sanderson's first novel for youth recalls the best in Artemis Fowl and A Series of Unfortunate Events." -VOYA

This was so much fun! It was hilarious and action-y and just plain fun. This is the first Brandon Sanderson book I've read (I picked it up while waiting for my hold on Mistborn). I really enjoyed the sarcasm and 4th wall breaks and allusions, but the plot was really good as well.
