City of Bones by Cassandra Clare


When Clary witnesses a murder and the body quickly disappears before her eyes she realizes things are very bizarre. Her world is turned up-side-down as she is drawn into a strange new world of Shadowhunters, demons, warriors and mundanes. Clary’s mother is no where to be found and Clary is almost killed by a monster. Why would demons be so interested in Clary and her mother? As Jace, a Shadowhunter, pulls Clary into this new dimension the world of good and evil is not so clear. I’m not a huge fantasy fan but this incredibly fast paced gripping story held my attention from beginning to end. It would be a great read-a-loud in middle school or an excellent recommendation for reluctant readers.
