Who was your favorite character and why? Magnus because he was kind and smart.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Matron Pluckrose because she was overly-strict, evil, hated children and was also very selfish. Although, Lythia was also my least favorite character because she was evil and greedy.

Was it plot or character driven? Both.
What did you think of the ending? Sweet.
What was the moral of the story? You can do good in the world, even if you don’t have a guardian angel.
