Middle Grade Fantasy
After months of living a normal life, thirteen-year-old Alyssa McCarthy faces magic again. Only this time, though, she is cursed with it, thanks to an old depressed skeleton named Errol. Alyssa’s time with her godfather, Alex, will never be the same again, as she can perform sorcery, but never control it. From letting out enchantments at school to creating outdoor disasters, Alyssa is bound to face consequences. She can only get rid of her powers if she can boost her confidence levels and improve her bravery. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. She must measure those abilities with a special device called a skillometer. Will she be able to get rid of her unwanted wizardry?
Alyssa’s journey continues! I truly enjoy Alyssa as a main character. She is one that readers can relate to and learn from. Not a bad example, she has her ups and downs like anyone else.
This novel is a great continuation in the series. I like where Sunayna Prasad has taken the story. There is still lots of great descriptions to make us feel like we are a part of the world.
New trials, surprises, and even more wizardry will have Fantasy lovers happy.
