The votes are in! Middle school students from the Troy Public Schools have selected The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson as the Troybery winner for this year. It was selected from ten nominated titles. Congratulations on a great program!
The Rithmastist tells the story of Joel, who wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings—merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice.
