I‘m not the target audience for this book which is a middle grade. I like middle grade books but I didn‘t enjoy this one as much as I would liked. The story was too long and confusing but this is an unpopular opinion. Most people like this series. I don‘t think I will continue with it. I liked Mini, so funny. This book I think is great to introduce children with Hindu mythology and folklore. 3⭐️

This was such a beautiful book about acceptance and being a kid. It was almost like Mean Girls was mixed with The Big Bang Theory in some ways with a super smart, socially awkward boy and a very popular and beautiful and somewhat mean girl who come together in an unexpected way. I loved the story and the characters and the way the author took serious topics and made them relatable. This is a must read for young adults and everyone.

I really thought this was a great book. It reminds me of Kate DiCamillo.

I loved Middlegame, but wasn't sure if I was interested in this spin-off. Turns out I was! It shares a fair bit of DNA with Cat Valente's Fairyland books, with a sliiightly less knowing narrator. On finishing it, I was irritated not to have the second book; I'd got really into it.

Clare-Dragonfly Similar to the Fairyland books?! I‘m sold! 2d

Amari just wants to find her brother. She‘s willing to do whatever it takes to find him and is tired of being underestimated by the people around her. A fun supernatural romp full of magicians, fairies, aliens, and other supernatural creatures.
