Book 24 for 2010

The Crystal Keeper by James Jauncey. 245 pages

Fairly standard YA fantasy. A young girl named Sammie if summoned into a fantasy realm to save the inhabitants of an enchanted valley.

There's not a huge amount to say about this one really. I wanted something light and easily digestible to read and this fit the bill pretty well. Readable enough but nothing outstanding.

The only thing that struck me after I'd finished it was that the situation that Sammie was called in to remedy was a direct consequence of a practice for which there was no particularly obvious reason, and could easily have been avoided with a bit of sensible planning.
