SOPHIE QUIRE & THE LAST STORYGUARD, by Jonathan Auxier

The story: Sophie Quire is a book mender is a city that not only doesn’t value books–it’s about to gather every work of fiction to be found and burn it. When a strange boy and his seemingly mutant cat appear with an equally strange book in need of mending, Sophie is astounded to find that it contains information about her mother’s death–the event that has made Sophie the Last Storyguard. When the book is stolen, Sophie joins the quest to recover it…and in so doing, finds out the truth about her life, her mother, and all the magic in the world.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s an amazing piece of fantasy fiction.  It reminded me of “The Map to Everywhere” and “Story Thieves.” If you liked those ones, make sure to get acquainted with Sophie.  Recommended!
