The Chaos King, Laura Ruby's second book about Gurl and Bug, took up right where her first novel, The Wall and the Wing, left of. Ruby did an amazing job bringing in new characters without abandoning all of her old ones.

The Chaos King, Laura Ruby's second book about Gurl and Bug, took up right where her first novel, The Wall and the Wing, left off. The cliff hanger from the last chapter of the first book was immediately picked up in this sequel so the adventures start from the very first page.

Chaos King, The book.

Written by Laura Ruby. Narrated by Renee Raudman. But adventure is just around the corner, as a madman who calls himself The Chaos King has Georgie and Bug in his sights. In their efforts to save themselves from his insane plans, Georgie and Bug discover some of the amazing secrets of the city they love.

Renée Raudman's distinct voices make this sequel to THE WALL and THE WING a joyful listen. Raudman creates a full complement of unique voices for the range of characters-from timid Georgie, the only girl who can become invisible, to Bug, the boy who can fly. The story leads Georgie and Bug on the trail of vampires and crazy artists whose magic has gone amuck. Listeners will giggle at animal impersonations, including those of Noodle, the slightly supernatural cat, and Pinkwater, the incredibly verbal budgie.

Renee Raudman, Laura Ruby. Not only is she the one person who can disappear at will, but since she found her parents, she's become The Richest Girl in the Universe. She may be special, but is she lucky? Her parents have forbidden her to vanish, her new school is full of snooty heiresses, she's had a growth spurt that makes her as graceful as a grizzly, and her best friend in the world, a belligerent boy named Bug, seems to have abandoned her.

Narrated by Renée Raudman. Not only is she the one person who can disappear at will, but since she found her parents, she's become The Richest.

Having read the first book isn't required, but would be encouraged, as this is definitely a sequel in tone and style. Grand amusement for the hip and clever. Another zany adventure unfolds in a startlingly odd alternate universe showcasing Ruby’s humorous narration and including characters from The Wall and the Wing (2006. Bug and Gurl haven’t been close since Gurl became Georgie, The Richest Girl in the World, and landed with a loving family. Bug won a city-wide Flyfest contest and has been doing one commercial after another to be independent of Sweetcheeks Grabowski, his criminal father.

Laura Ruby is the author of twelve books, including Bone Gap, winner of the 2016 Printz Award and finalist for the 2015 National Book Award. Bone Gap is a coming-of-age mystery about a kidnapping in a small Midwestern town, and it incorporates elements of mythology and magical realism.

The book series is really an odd, fantasy series for young adults. I'm an older adult but love the genre when I picked it up at a book sale at a local charity. Read it in just a couple days. You need to have read the first book to understand what is really going on with the characters. Just started reading the book as I read three books at the same time. So far it's just as exciting and off the wall as the first.

I was very disappointed to receive a hard back copy without a cover of this book. I was hoping to continue to series with simple paperbacks. UGH... They should have been more descriptive with "acceptable".

After reading The Wall and the Wing I had some high expectations for this novel that were not entirely met. The book was entertaining, but it lacked the warm quirkiness of the city that author Laura Ruby had expressed in the previous novel. The hints at young romance were very nice, but the overprotective parents, vampires, strange animals coming to life, The Second Richest Girl in the Universe, the Punk named Mandelbrot, etc. all conspired to weigh the story down. I think it's just a classic case of trying to put too many different pieces into a story. If it had been more concise I would have enjoyed this book more. However, I am still hoping a 3rd installment will be coming out soon. Ruby has created an enticing universe and I look forward to seeing where she takes it next.

Georgie is special. She can disappear at will, has discovered her parents and has become The Richest Girl in the Universe.

If she's so special then why does she feel so unlucky?

Her parents have forbidden her to use her ability, she feels awkward, and The Second Richest Girl in the Universe hates her. And what's with her best friend Bug? He now seems too involved with his celebrity status to have anything to do with her.

But just when she thinks no one notices her, a Punk named Mandelbrot invites her to a party. One she has to attend or else.

Along the way she meets vampires who are more interested in poppyseed bagels than blood, a candy-loving sloth, an old ladies book club that puts new meaning to the phrase words have power, living lions of stone, and a fussy man named Mr. Fuss. Weird things are happening in her city and it's up to both her and Bug to find a special book to help set things right.

This is a fun tale with quirky characters. Most of the characters can fly--well, maybe only bounce, except Bug, who can fly. I related with Georgia's wanting to disappear--but then what teen hasn't felt this way? The vampires in this story are hilarious. Who knew that maybe Sesame Street's Court Drac actually might have been right?

This book is sure to appeal to those who love quirky tales.

The Chaos King, Laura Ruby's second book about Gurl and Bug, took up right where her first novel, The Wall and the Wing, left off. The cliff hanger from the last chapter of the first book was immediately picked up in this sequel so the adventures start from the very first page.

Ruby did an amazing job bringing in new characters without abandoning all of her old ones. Georgie (formally Gurl) is learning how to be a daughter at the same time she is learning what it means to be the Wall. Bug is craving fame from his good looks to cover up his loneliness. Together the two characters have great chemistry. You can tell from the writing that Ruby likes her main characters and likes writing about them.

The Chaos King was an extremely enjoyable read. I look forward to Laura Ruby's next book in the series
