BOOK REVIEW: Upside Down Magic by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle, Emily Jenkins


BLURB:

In a world of elite magic academies, weird and wonderful things happen when you're sent off to public school...and put in the Upside-Down Magic class. 

It's never easy when your magic goes wonky.

For Nory, this means that instead of being able to turn into a dragon or a kitten, she turns into both of them at the same time-a dritten.

For Elliott, the simple act of conjuring fire from his fingertips turns into a fully frozen failure.

For Andres, wonky magic means he's always floating in the air, bouncing off the walls, or sitting on the ceiling.

For Bax, a bad moment of magic will turn him into a . . . actually, he'd rather not talk about that.

Nory, Elliott, Andres, and Bax are just four of the students in Dunwiddle Magic School's Upside-Down Magic class. In their classroom, lessons are unconventional, students are unpredictable, and magic has a tendency to turn wonky at the worst possible moments. Because it's always amazing, the trouble a little wonky magic can cause . . .

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 3 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This is one of the most amazing books ever! Every 11-13 year old needs to read this book. I would want to be a fluxer and if you are wondering, a fluxer is someone who can turn into an animal and in some cases, an object. 

If you like magic, team work, kittens and a bunch of wonkos then get cozy and read on! 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11-13. 

This book's publishing date is September 29, 2015.
