A secret attic is discovered by twins, Ophelia and Linus.  As an avid bookworm, twelve-year-old Ophelia falls asleep reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the attic when she wakes up and discovers Quasimodo.  The twins have the help of friends to keep Quasimodo safe and to help him get back to the time and place where he belongs before he is destroyed. 

Will they make it in time?

About the author- L. L. Samson has been a co-author with her husband and has written over 25 books herself.
My thoughts- I was captivated by this book from the beginning.  I thought it was clever to have two different titles to most of the chapters and I was reminded of the Narnia series by C. S. Lewis with the word usage.
I have been trying to think of something that I didn’t like about this book and I can’t think of anything.  The plot and characters were well developed and I couldn’t stop reading it once I started. 
Other than the excellent storyline, I thought it was great that this book was written for both boys and girls.  It is difficult to find good books for boys and it is great when the book works well for boys or girls.
I would highly recommend this book to all juveniles.  This book made me want to check The Hunchback of Notre Dame out of the library so I could learn even more about Quasimodo.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
Disclosure of Material Connection- I received Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame by L. L. Samson for free from Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255. All links were current when posted.
