Fifth-grade witch April Appleton can’t believe her eyes: a boy just made a large tree branch fall on her dad’s car in the middle of the night! When she gets to school, the mayhem continues, the heat is cranked way up, birds are flying through the hallways and there’s a boy standing in the corner quietly observing all of it.
While her friends, Grace and Eve, try to help, April realizes that she must figure out this craziness on her own. Is this boy the cause of all the trouble? Or is the new math teacher somehow involved?
But with ghosts appearing and time stopping, April must take a deep breath and trust in the magical powers of herself and others to make things normal again.
This being the third book it shows this adorable series just keeps getting better because it’s not only entertaining, full of excitement, and humorously fun but the writing style is perfect for young readers.
I adore Aikens-Nunez’s series because it helps my young daughter work on her reading skills and she likes the characters and their hijinks so much I don’t have to bribe her to put in some time between the pages.
As a parent it’s so important to me to encourage my daughter to read AND that she have access to books that are appropriate for her so I don’t have to worry about what she’s being exposed to when she gets enough exposure to the negative in the real world. I’m so grateful to have an author like this I can count on for decent material.
Thank you to Netgalley and Central Avenue Publishing for allowing me to review this book.
