The Magic Warble & A GREAT GIVEAWAY!!

Today's post is not the usual post you see here, but hold on it is for great reasons!! I had the opportunity to read a book by the author Victoria Simcox called:
I was in need of a great book to read and this one was that!!
Twelve- year- old Kristina Kingsley, never felt like she fit in.  She had a great family, but the kids at school would tease her any chance they got.  Her best friend was her pet rat named Raymond.  Little did Kristina know that a strange Christmas gift would change her life .   After opening the gift she finds herself magically in the land of Bernovem, which is home to dwarfs,fairies, gnomes, talking animals and the evil Queen Sentiz. 
     In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in but is honored as "the chosen one". She is the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz evil power.  In order to do this she must place the gift she was given, "The Magic Warble" in it's final resting place.  This is no easy task for there are many miles and obstacles she must make it through.  All the while she must avoid caught by the queen's zelbocks.   Luckily, Kristina is guided by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, two fairies named Clover and Looper as well as many other characters to help her on this dangerous journey.  It is during this time that Kristina finds her strength and true friendship.  She also gets the chance to take revenge against the kids who treated her so badly...but will she do it???  You'll have to read to find out.
     This book moves quickly and had many twists and turns that keep you guessing.  It is written for ages 9-13 and it is perfect for this age group, but I enjoyed it very much!!  I could not put it down, it kept me engaged the whole time.  I am excited for my daughters to read it next!!   A HUGE THANKS to Victoria for sending me the book!!

  2. Sounds like a great book. I find myself more drawn towards the young adult genre (like "Hunger Games") so this would be perfect for me :)

  3. I am not ashamed to say that I love to read young adult books. I still every year read the little house on the prairie series and anne of green gables series. I would love to read this book.
