What if you were an artistic child and this was something not cherished,
but punished by society?
The Unwanteds follows the story of the artistic kids, or Unwanteds, from
a world much like ours called Quill. In Quill, Unwanted kids are
banished and sent to what they think is a death camp, while Wanteds go
to University to prepare for the life ahead of them. When Alex Stowe
arrives at the "death camp" he and his fellow Unwanteds learn it is so
much more, it is really another realm called Artime.
In Artime, Alex and his friends begin training of their own, using their
artistic talents as defenses, preparing for the war with the Wanteds of
Quill they know is coming soon.
This book is a fun roller-coaster ride and is a great option for lovers
of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson.

— Bess


Every year in Quill, thirteen-year-olds are sorted into categories: the strong, intelligent Wanteds go to university, and the artistic Unwanteds are sent to their deaths

Thirteen-year-old Alex tries his hardest to be stoic when his fate is announced as Unwanted, even while leaving behind his twin, Aaron, a Wanted. Upon arrival at the destination where he expected to be eliminated, however, Alex discovers a stunning secret--behind the mirage of the "death farm" there is instead a place called Artime.

In Artime, each child is taught to cultivate their creative abilities and learn how to use them magically, weaving spells through paintbrushes and musical instruments. Everything Alex has ever known changes before his eyes, and it's a wondrous transformation.

But it's a rare, unique occurence for twins to be separated between Wanted and Unwanted, and as Alex and Aaron's bond stretches across their separation, a threat arises for the survival of Artime that will pit brother against brother in an ultimate, magical battle.
