What is your magic place?
Mine is definitely a bookstore
I absolutely blazed through this book with it’s surprising twists and turns. Even my husband was intrigued by the beautiful artwork included in this book. This middle grade read tells a story of terrible deceit with a powerfully hopeful ending. With the brilliant metaphor of the black and grey city vs the bright and colorful magic place.
Well paced, beautifully written, this one should be a great add to any shelf.
