Upside Down Magic
Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Mvrace and Emily Jenkins
Available September 2015
I loved the book “Upside Down Magic” by Sarah Mlynowski, Lauren Myracle and Emily Jenkins because everyone in the book had an unusual ability. They were a freezer, a kid that turns into a rock, a girl who makes a it rain, a guy who sees invisible sound waves, a girl who scares animals, a kid who is like a balloon, a girl who shrinks things, a little girl who turns not a beaver, not a kitten but bitten and many other combinations. Nory was sent away to live with her aunt. Go to a different school and leave her friends behind.
Nory was different, not able to do regular school assignments. At first Nory was unhappy but she soon realized it was okay to be different at her new school.
I liked the character Bax, a fluxor at Nory’s new school who could turn into objects instead of animals. In the story Bax turned into a rope to help Nory with a problem.
I cant wait for the second book, to find out what happens to Nory.
