Meet Alex: dreadlocks are her signature look, t-shirts are the only thing worth wearing, and nothing is better than spending time on the California farm where she grew up. So, when her mother dies forcing Alex to move in with her white glove wearing grandmother in Georgia, she clearly has a problem. Her grandmother, Miss Lee, is insistent on Alex joining a sophisticated group called the Magnolia League.
Turns out the Magnolia League has access to a little magic…
I would be lying if I said this is a new favorite. The beginning was a little slow, and other than the cliffhanger at the end I found it mostly predictable.
That’s not saying this isn’t worth reading. Readers will enjoy Alex’s easygoing philosophy on life and will be eager to see what she does next in the sequel (coming this July)!
