I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Julie Abe is the author of the EVA EVERGREEN, SEMI-MAGICAL WITCH middle-grade fantasy series. She has lived in Silicon Valley, spent many humid summers in Japan, and currently basks in the sunshine of Southern California with never enough books or tea.
“Still, annoyances aside, I love this cozy plaza, where sorcery meets reality. It’s home.”
Ellie has just finished her junior year and is excited about her summer break. The last thing she expected was for her best friend to discover her biggest secret or being stuck with her neighbor and old best friend. Now, the summer is going to be anything but magical.
This was such a cute story. I loved the infusion of magic and culture. Ellie was a charming character. I loved her storyline.
I liked how charms were incorporated throughout and how magic was presented. It was fantasy, without being too much.
This adorable coming-of-age story is about forgiveness, acceptance, and moving forward. I enjoyed this book a lot.
