Book Review: Maggie Malone and the Mostly Magical Boots


[ABOUT] Maggie Malone and the Mostly Magical Boots By Carolyn Evans & Jenna McCarthy… If you could be anyone-who would you choose? Sixth grader Maggie Malone is having her worst birthday ever. She’s the new girl at Pinkerton Middle School where she has zero friends. And her favorite gift-giving aunt sent her a pair of boring, brown, hand-me-down boots. (Yeah, those’ll make her popular.) Maggie wishes her life could be more like tween pop sensation Becca Starr’s. BAM! When Maggie looks around there’s no ball gown or handsome prince—just a bright spotlight…and twenty thousand screaming fans. It turns out Maggie’s boots are more than a little magical. And now she gets to spend a day in the life of anyone she chooses… Age Range: 9 – 12 years

[REVIEW] My daughter loved this book. She is in 6th grade and couldn’t put it down and several times I heard her giggling as she was reading. I think she enjoyed connecting to a character that is the same age. She now wants her mother-daughter book club to read it!
