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.

Reading progress update: I've read 100 out of 272 pages.
The Magic Misfits - Lissy Marlin,Neil Patrick Harris

The story is about a boy Carter who was a street magician with a bad uncle. He run away and met with new friends who are also into magic. 


What so good about this one is that Neil Patrick Harris has added beginner level of magic tricks into the story.


Also it is a very diverse in characters, including adoptive child, same sex couple as parents and teen in wheelchair. The focus is not on their diversity but as a diverse background to the story. 


Like that treatment a lot.

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.

Cute coming out story that is in the DNF pile
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli



Not in a mood for romance. It is cute and I would have like it if I'm in a different kind of mood.


The story start with a young gay man got found out that he is gay but another classmate. And this classmate is using this knowledge to force him to help him.


It is cute. And close to the language of young persons. 


I'm just not in the mood to read this.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli

Someone made a stupid mistake of not logging out of gmail.


And someone read the gmail. Of a secret exchange. 


Simon is gay and has not come out yet. 

So when someone found out he is gay, and used that to blackmail him into helping him getting a girl, this is kind of bad.

Kind of cute. But not really the type of book I like to read.
