The Book in the Attic by Melissa Gunther, is the first book in a series about Celia. A girl who is living with her aunt after her parents disappeared from their home, never to be heard from again. After enduring all the boring things that her aunt puts her through, she's told to clean the attic. When she does, she find this really old looking book. After she's done cleaning she takes it back to her room and sets it on her desk. After a few hours of dealing with her grandmother, she's getting ready for bed when she sees that its glowing. She's opens it and out pops a little floating man, who tells her about a boarding school. (Her aunt is trying to send her off to a boarding school after her birthday.) After being told that this school is for people who have "special gifts" and is shown pictures of the school she really wants to go. And after about a month, she's at the school where everyone seems to know her name and more about her then she does. She meets new friends and some enemies, almost gets kicked out of school for something she didn't do. But through out the school year she learns new things about herself, her family, and what kind of gifts she has. After reading this book for a few times I still love it. If you love the Harry Potter series, then you will love this. It's one of those books where you just want to find out what's going to happen next.
