Why did I love this book?
With Amari as the feisty young underdog driving this story, in a world where the real collides with magic in an everyday setting, it’s hard not to love this book. It’s a reminder of the possibility that lives in the impossible and a heart-warming, racy fantasy adventure that is at once empowering and enthralling. I don’t want to give too much away but it doffs its hat at the magical world of Harry Potter with a twist of the uncanny undercover agents in the film Men in Black and it does it beautifully. B.B. Alston reminds us that there’s a richness to life even though Amari is growing up coming from a disadvantaged background. The message is clear, you can do anything you put your mind to as long as you never let others define you. And this sentiment is portrayed through beautiful, witty, and imaginative prose. A must-read
