A highly engaging book with interesting and believable characters, a plot that’s just complex enough, and lots of imaginative storytelling. (And no, it’s not a clone of Harry Potter. That was not the first book to be written about children learning magic, and there’s no reason it should be the last.) Despite the age of the main character (12), I would suggest the book can be read and enjoyed by readers of any age who enjoy YA. There is no romantic subplot (which is good, because it would be completely unnecessary) and the level of writing/language is complex enough to be very enjoyable as an adult reader. Highly recommended to all lovers of YA!
