Genre: Children’s Fantasy/Comedy/Drama
Who was your favorite character and why? Lily because I could relate to her the most.
Who was your least favorite character and why? I didn’t actually have a least favorite character. Even the evil characters were, in some way, comedic or helpful.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? At first, I thought is was going to be super lame but it turned out to be a thrilling book and I had hardly any time to relax and take it all in. All the magic was slightly difficult to keep track of but, other than that, it was truly marvelous.
Was it plot or character driven? Character.
What did you think of the ending? The ending was happy and cute. There could definitely be a sequel, too, which is exciting.
What was the moral of the story? Every good thing can be bad but you’re the only one who can change that.
