Keeper of the Lost Cities Summary

Keeper of the Lost Cities - A New York Times bestselling series
A USA TODAY bestselling series
A California Young Reader Medal–winning series

In this riveting series opener, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…

But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.

    Great Book! I honestly have never been more infested in a series than I have with these books, they have good humor but also serious and sad moments too. I 100% recommend this series. And if Keefe and Sophie don’t end up together I’m done!
  • Yeeeeeees!! 116 stars

    This book was one of the best books I have ever read! I plan on to continue the series and read all of the books. I personally think that you (Shannon Messenger) should make Sophie and Dex fall in love or Fitz and Sophie. Another suggestion, I think you should make Dex a telepath too or give him another special ability. I also think Keefe should fall in love with Bianna. I don’t know if these things happen in following books, but please reply back. I absolutely loved this book and I suggest you read it.
