I found The Unwanteds an entertaining read. I liked how the author, Lisa McMann, showed the Unwanted kids gaining self-esteem and self-respect as the story went along. They learned to depend upon themselves and each other and solve threatening situations. There's no "bad" language or extreme violence. The Unwanteds is a fun fantasy for all ages, though I think will be more enjoyed by the younger ones.*Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher, Simon and Schuster for review.
