So she’s less than thrilled to discover that not only is the book alive, it’s full of a growing and dangerous magic. Worse still, the world to which it belongs is missing, and Suzy and her friends will have to use all their ingenuity to find it.
Suzy must help a fledgling rebellion seize power, return the book to its rightful owner, and get home before her parents ground her for life.

The Great Brain Robbery: A Train to Impossible Places Novel:
"Bell has a knack for timing, knowing just when to break away from the action. The characters in this volume are more developed, especially Suzy, who takes on leadership successfully. Part adventure, part mystery, part fantasy world set on its ear, there is something here for everyone." —Booklist
The Train to Impossible Places:
“All aboard for an adventure like no other—readers will be delighted to learn it's just the first.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Bell sets a smart pace, guiding Suzy smoothly through one impossibility after another in a way that keeps readers off-balance without bogging them down . . . while promising potential future adventures for Suzy.” —The Horn Book
“A rollicking adventure . . . reminiscent of Terry Pratchett and Diana Wynne Jones. The characters and plot are refreshingly well developed and raise serious questions about honor and freedom. Fortunately, there will be more adventures in this first in a projected series. All aboard!” —Booklist
"This debut fantasy is full of imaginative locales and fun twists, and readers will enjoy the creativity of Bell’s world and its look at how power left unchecked can corrupt." —Publishers Weekly
