I've been reading a lot of middle grade stuff, hunting books for my niece, and 12 year old protagonists are the best. Charming. Just charming. I liked everything about this book and can't wait to read the rest of this trilogy.

This book is a mash-up of Harry Potter, Cinderella, and Jane Austen! Doesn't that just sound exciting?!?!?!?!This was such a lovely book. It was charming and elegant, and full of spunk!
