I am *so* behind on book reviews! Oops. Not that I haven't been reading a whole lot, because I have been, but I just haven't been blogging them. I'll get caught up one of these days. But I thought I'd start with my first book of 2015 and go in order :)
It was a treat to read this book, and Medeia has a way with creating interesting and complex characters that really draw the reader in. I enjoyed this novel a lot, especially the growth in Lily. The situation with her mother's abduction is incredibly tense and Lily manages to handle it well. Her journey to work out the clues and help bring her mother home was great and I found myself cheering her on. And really wanting to visit her father's pastry shop, haha! It was incredibly sad to see how little Lily thought of herself with her struggles in school, which made her growth and acceptance so much more rewarding. I recommend this one especially to those who enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, or if you just enjoy a good mystery with a little magic thrown in :)
