  • This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I want to preface this review by stating that fantasy is not my thing If there is any element of fantasy, magic, wizardry, or the like I am neither interested nor invested Having said that, the advanced copy I read did not have a synopsis of the book on the back cover but, having previously enjoyed Lisa Graff s work, I eagerly plucked it from the publisher s pile Had I known the subject of the story I likely would no [...]


  • This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Hmmmmmmmm I finished this book and stared at it with pursed lips I didn t like the level of magical realism k, I can shrug off your spiritualism, because that s easily explained away Magical octopuses passing along messages though also the false plural octopi octopus is of Greek etymology, and octopi is a Latin plural ending so really, the correct plural should be octopuses NO Nothing else in this book corroborates t [...]

  • 3.5 stars A very readable slice of life book about a 12 year old growing up, learning truths, and coming into her own I feel like I would have liked it when I was 9 or 10 years old A little fantastical so much that I wasn t sure if this was going to be magical realism or not I won t spoil it , but the suspension of disbelief was in the just right zone.


  • I loved this book CJ travels around the country with her aunt Nic who is a medium when Spirit starts sending CJ signs about her mother she decides she must follow the signs to see what spirit is telling her.


  • Full of heart, humor, twists, turns, and relatable questions about what and whom we believe This book made me think, laugh, feel, and keep turning the pages
