Young magicians adventure
The Magic Misfits - Lissy Marlin,Neil Patrick Harris

Carter is an orphan who lived with a bad uncle that used him to steal from people.

 

He run away and take a train ride to another beautiful small town where he met a magician and his family.

 

Now he got new friends who like magic and would help him to gain some trust back. 

 

The book is written for teenagers who like adventure and secret code. There are quite a lot of those. Also, there are in-between chapters that give beginner level magic tricks. 

 

Lovely. It is a fun read and a fun books with secret messages. 

 

Looking for them now.... And the story is about teenagers against bad guys who want to steal from people. 

 

The diversity in characters and background has sent a message that just written words. There are two gay dads with an adopted daughter, a best friend in wheelchair. Like real life, people are diverse, but they could be friends and do things together. And the difference doesn't really matter. It is no big deal. And that's the treatment in this book.

 

Highly recommended it. Especially for children and teens.

Last summer before graduation
The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness

A time that is about friendship and change.

 

Mikey is a teenager who has OCD. He is under a lot of stress as his mom is a politician. He has one older sister Mel and a young sister. He also has one best friend Jared and a crash Henna. 

 

Typical enough? They are about a group of teenagers who live in a world where zombie and vampire is real. And that happened to the indie kids, a group of outsiders who interact with the supernatural.

 

His crash has a boyfriend Nathan who Mike dislike with a passion. 

 

And it is about the last summer before they are going on their separate way. And how his best friend Jared is three quarters Jewish and one quarter god because his grandmother is a goddess. 

 

It is a fun read as it is not so much about the supernatural but the life of these teenagers who are graduating that are interesting. 

 

5 stars read. Highly recommended.

Amber, the 16 yr old girl demon is on the run
Demon Road 02. Desolation - Derek Landy

The 2nd book of the series following "Demon Road". Amber is now safe from her parents, but not from the demon that gave his parents power. 

 

She is on the run with her protector Milo. 

 

This is more blood and gory on this installment. 

 

Reading this for Chilling Children square. 

 

 

 

OK. Amber is a bit more demon-y than the last one. Also, the single romantic exchange lack the build-up that it needs.

 

So... it is more like a irrational teenager who is a bit off than a rational teenager character perceived by teenagers. Do adults really think of teenagers this way?

 

The kiss a bit too awkward.

 

The fights a bit too bloody for my taste. 

 

The mistake made, not wearing a seat belt while playing chicken with an enemy vehicle.

 

All mistake that really pieces of the story that is not doing much to the plot. 

 

Where is the plot btw?

 

Amber is being chase by Hell Hound who are more like mean bikers. 

 

Javier and other amateur demon fighters are all added to the story without really adding strength to the fight. 

 

So... not the highest point. But still readable. Like a girl in the lead. Like being at least somewhat LGBT friendly.

 

So... probably going to read the last one of the series.

Book like this about children having fun at pride parade.

 

Probably not as colorful as this boy, but close.
