The Golden Compass

Author: Philip Pullman
Reviewer's Age: 12

This book discusses the adventures of a young girl named Lyra who journeys to save her friend Roger from the Gobblers -- a group dedicated to discovering the mysteries of "dust" (a sub-atomic particle) by performing cruel and unusual experiments on children. On her journey, Lyra discovers who her parents really were and the many mysteries of armored bears, witches, a compass that points to the truth, and of course her own abilities.
