The Clockwork Three

Three ordinary children are brought together by extraordinary events. . . .As mysterious circumstances bring them together, the lives of these three children soon interlock, and they realize that each one holds the key to the others’ puzzles. Together, the three discover they have phenomenal power when they team up as friends, and that they can overcome even the darkest of fears.

I thought this book was just okay.  I felt it was a little involved in details that didn’t matter to the story and it took a while to weave them all together and make the story seem coherent.  I also thought it was a bit ripped off from the book by Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
