Silver, an 11-year-old girl, is known as The Child with the Golden Face, but she’s too caught up in her work to know this, let alone anything else in the world. The only things she knows exist in her house, named Tanglewreck. Little does she realize that she’s about to go on an incredible journey through time to find a clock called the Timekeeper. As soon as Silver sets off, two mysterious figures spring to life in order to stop her. Join Silver and her friend Gabriel on a race against time to save the world as we know it.
Reading Tanglewreck, you will definitely get the impression that the author, Jeanette Winterson, spent a lot of time making this book entertaining, confusing and suspenseful, all at once. I think what really gave this book its charm was its interesting theories on time, like that time moved slower in cold and darkness. That’s why I liked this book. And now, I think I’m going to move to a sewer!
