BOOK REVIEW: Diary of Anna the Girl Witch Book 1: Foundling Witch by Max Candee


BLURB:


What do you do when you discover you’re a witch? 
And that using your new powers destroys your soul a little each time? 

Set in the Swiss countryside, this story blends ancient folklore with a coming of age tale about a young witch on the brink of womanhood. Anna Sophia has always known she was different. She didn’t know just how different until now.

Through a story of otherworldly magic, Anna Sophia finds a sense of real-world belonging. With its cast of strong characters, inventive setting, and engaging storyline, this fantasy adventure is a relevant novel for middle grade children or young adults.


REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 8 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book is definitely for younger audiences. It has big print and the words are easy to read. However, it might be a bit scary to younger children. 

My favorite character is Anna because she will do anything for her friends and never lets them down. Sara is pretty cool too. 

My favorite part is when she escapes with the other children. I really love the cover of this book, but I was expecting so much more. 

I recommend this book to those that like to read about witches. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 10.
