Discovery, by Tracy Winn, is a short story. The design and layout of the book are standard but nicely placed on the pages, allowing for an easy read. The story offers mystery and adventure for readers of all ages to enjoy.

This is the story of a young girl who loves to be alone and create imaginative stories in her head. She excels in some areas and subjects in school but is not social and does not enjoy the company of others at lunch. She finds a secret spot during this time in a cloak room, where she creates her stories. At home, she behaves the same way as during school, a loner, not wanting to be involved with other activities. She finds herself in the attic, yearning to find something adventurous, something that tells a story.

I enjoyed reading this book. The plot of the story is very appealing to children as they all have the tendency to be adventurous and curious, just like the character in the book. The intricate details provided in describing different "scenes" helped me imagine exactly what the girl in the story was doing. The story had a feel of family history and forgotten treasures. Most children and young adults will enjoy this as much as I did. The ending allows for more to be added by the author or for a reader to explore their own ideas of what might happen next. Two great options in a fun and creative read.
