The Golden Compass

Author: Philip Pullman
Review Writer: Book Girl
Lyra Belacqua is a girl running half-wild at the Jordan College with her friend, Roger, the kitchen boy. However, strange things start happening when she sees the Master put poison in her uncle, Lord Asriel's drink. She foils the murder, but things get even stranger. A strange organization, called the Gobblers is kidnapping children. No one knows where they are taking the kids, and worse no on knows what they are doing to them. Then, Lyra discovers that her best friend Roger has been taken by the Gobblers as well. However, all this is forgotten when Lyra is swept from the college with the mysterious Mrs. Coulter, an explorer in the north. Lyra soon learns that Mrs. Coulter is no what she seems, so in a fit of fury she runs away. Will she rescue Roger?
