This book by Brian Selznick tells the story of Hugo an orphan, clock keeper, and thief, who lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

    "I love this book. It's very unusual and imaginative. Maybe you have seen the movie. Like always, the book is better than the movie. It's very fast paced and hard to put down. It's for middle school ages but I think adults will enjoy this book just as much. Good choice."

    "I came to this novel from the movie Hugo, directed by Martin Scorcese. At first I didn't know quite what to make of it: a 500+ page, steampunk-inspired story about a kid who lives in the walls of a train station in Paris (?!). But 100 or so pages in, I was hooked. I don't know that this stands among the very best steampunk novels, but it certainly stands out on its own. "

    "I didn't really care for this book. The characters seemed flat and uninteresting, the story just couldn't hold my interest. I really tried to enjoy it but just couldn't."

    "This book solves the problem for sure. It has an engaging and very interesting plot. It has great reviews already and I expect the number to continue to grow."

    "Wow a book this thick and big you wouldn't think there would be pictures in it but there are and they're great. "
