Everything I’d known about the world was a lie.

On my thirteenth birthday, I, Alcatraz Smedry (yes, I got named after a prison, don’t ask), received my inheritance: a bag of sand. And then I accidentally destroyed my foster parents’ kitchen. It’s not my fault, things just break around me, I swear!

I thought the sand was a joke until evil Librarians came to steal it. You’re probably thinking, “Librarians are nice people who recommend good books,” but that’s just what they want you to think! It turns out they’re actually a secret cabal keeping the truth from you—a hidden world filled with magical eyeglasses, talking dinosaurs, and knights with crystal swords!

Or so my Grandpa Smedry claimed when he suddenly showed up to rescue me. So now I have to go with him to invade the local library and get that sand back, before it’s used to conquer the world. And Grandpa says how I keep breaking things is actually an amazing talent. There’s no way that can all be true, right?

Will I ever make it back home alive?

“An excellent choice to read aloud to the whole family. Funny, exciting, and briskly paced.”—NPR

Brandon sanderson's work has never failed to impress, he's invented yet another world full of fantastic characters, a unique magic system and diabolical villains. Lattice is a serious aimed for younger audience and as usual work means nothing, it's still gold. Also, the narrator? Magnificent. I believe you capture the spirit of the book flawlessly.
