Reviewer Rating:


This teen fantasy novel was such a pleasure to read. It is set in an ambiguous, possibly future time setting. Magic has been banned from the Newworld, where our heroine Maggie lives. One of the things I liked about the way this novel is written is the matter of fact tone, which contrasts nicely with the increasingly bizarre chain of events. Maggie, her family, her friends and even her dog are forced to step up when the battle between magical forces and the technology used to suppress them heats up and things go a bit crazy. This is a coming of age story with a lot of fun twists and turns. Definitely recommended for older teens and adults who like teen fiction.
