Do you love stories with fast-paced action, trips to remote islands in the Pacific Ocean, and sound bending? "Wait. What's sound bending?" you ask. It's an amazing ability where you can hear the history of an object just by touching it. When Leo turns 13, he finds out that he has this ability. As Leo touches an unusual helmet among his uncle's valuable artifacts, he hears odd noises and realizes he must find out the story of this mysterious helmet.
Intrigued? Read the first chapter of Sound Bender by Lin Oliver and Theo Baker.
If you could hear the history of one object in your house or school, what would you pick? Tell us in the Comments!
