I love books! My love of them started with Dick and Jane and I've never looked back. I love all kinds of books but on my blog I review Middle Grade and Young Adult novels. I also have a family, two sons and a great husband! I have one rescue dog, Jasper who hates text messages and thunder and fireworks and loves snow. I have a BA in English Lit from the University of Florida and spend time writing when I get the chance. I am not accepting review requests. Be kind to yourself and others.
Broomsticks by Sean McHugh and Katie McHugh Parker Diversion Press Blog Tour
Pocky McGuire has no idea why she is different. No one else in her family can levitate books or freeze and angry dog in his tracks. She felt alone in the world until one day she met a strange boy with a goatee. Unlike Pocky, Stamp had no doubt who he was. He was raised by witches and he was a witch. Upon meeting Stamp, Pocky hoped to befriend her magical counterpart and learn a few tricks of the trade. Stamp, however, wanted no part of anything or anyone mortal, including Pocky. Will it take magic to bring these two kindred spirits together?
The real magic of Broomsticks is not about the witchcraft! It is about the magic found in a special friendship and the magic of being yourself!
This is a great MG novel especially for those readers that look at the back to see how many pages are in the book. At 59 pages it won't seem daunting and with short chapters it's great for those reading chapter books. Plus it's PARANORMAL for MG!!! Can't say that for many books.
Pocky goes to school knowing she's a witch but feeling like a fish out of water thinking she's the only one. She gets along with her roommate, who is the joke of the rich, snobby crowd. Yes, even at the tender age of nine, there is one of those crowds, and I'm starting to believe it! Anyway, Pocky meets Stamp on the rooftop and finds out she's not the only one in the world that can do magic. She gets an education in magic from Stamp and they both learn something about friendship. It's a cute story with a subtle message. The writing is easy and straight forward. It's third person Point of View if we want to get technical, but I don't. There are great little drawings in it and yes, that is a goatee on a nine year old. It's magic of course! I hope there are other stories in this series. It reminds me of Sabrina from the Archie and Jughead comics. There's even a tribute to Elizabeth Montgomery in the beginning of the book. The kids won't remember her, but I remember her and Pocky is as innocent and magical. Grab a copy to read with your favorite MG reader!
