for Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones by Brandon Sanderson
Alcatraz Smedry has an incredible talent . . . for breaking things! It generally gets him into a lot of trouble, but can he use it to save the day? In this second Alcatraz adventure, our hero finds himself swept up by a glass dragon headed to the ancient Library of Alexandria (which some silly people think was long-ago destroyed!) to look for clues leading to Alcatraz's dead father who might not be dead afterall! They must also battle the creepy, soul-sucking curators who await them . . .
