    HI yes, excuse me while I try to arrange my chocolate pudding and regurgitated bird emotions into coherent sentences. Lauren's magic power is that she can wield humor like her own rubber duck topped staff and use it to explore very human and serious topics. There's a beauty in finishin...

    I liked this book better than I thought I would, but it's still not at the top of my list. I picked it up knowing it wasn't going to be my thing - I'm not a huge fan of the overly ridiculous, and that's exactly what the magic that Magaziner created is. From the randomly themed room...

    I received an ARC of this from a Twitter giveaway. This isn't just a good book, it's an important book. It lulls you in with a silly and whimsical world and absolutely gleeful voice, and then WHAM! Right in the feels! I actually just sat for half an hour after finishing this book...

    Nothing is stronger than family. Lennie tries to find a way to bring her family together during the exciting, but overly-competitive Wizardmatch. How will she be able to bring her extended family back together, and more importantly, how will she make up for the hurt she's caused her ve...

    Lennie loves practicing her magic. Her grandfather is the Prime Wizard de Pomporromp and each of his eight children and sixteen grandchildren have a special power that they must practice and hone as they get older. Lennie is ecstatic when she finds out that Poppop is holding Wizardmatc...

    I loved this! The magic of wizards mixed with a fierce competition for power kept me on my toes! The humor mixed with the adventure of Wizardmatch will keep young readers entertained! ...

    Too much propaganda. ...

    My second book of 2018 was so good that I read into the wee hours of January 3rd, unable to put it down. Wizardmatch is a fantasy about 12-year-old Lennie, whose family - along with those of her cousins - is summoned back by their grandfather, Mortimer de Pomporromp, to compete for...

    I received an ARC of this book in October 2017. It is a fun read with a lovely message about standing up yourself and the importance of family. It even has some Harry Potter similarities that fantasy fans will love. ...

    I love this book! Such a fun, empowering middle grade. ...

    My name is Lennie, and I couldn?t believe my mom chose Michael to compete against our cousins in the Wizardmatch! Poppop told her to pick him, but she should have stood up for me! It's so unfair! I deserve to be the next Prime Wizard, and I need to do something big. I found Uncle Hum...

    I received an ARC of this from a Twitter giveaway. This isn't just a good book, it's an important book. It lulls you in with a silly and whimsical world and absolutely gleeful voice, and then WHAM! Right in the feels! I actually just sat for half an hour after finishing this book...

    Nothing is stronger than family. Lennie tries to find a way to bring her family together during the exciting, but overly-competitive Wizardmatch. How will she be able to bring her extended family back together, and more importantly, how will she make up for the hurt she's caused her ve...

    Lennie loves practicing her magic. Her grandfather is the Prime Wizard de Pomporromp and each of his eight children and sixteen grandchildren have a special power that they must practice and hone as they get older. Lennie is ecstatic when she finds out that Poppop is holding Wizardmatc...
