I love this whole series, but this is where I started. I think the first book Storm Front is the weakest in the series, but you need it to understand the mythology. I am really looking forward to book 14. I am pulling for him and Murphy.

The Year She Disappeared (James A. Michener Fiction) by Ann Harleman
The Year She Disappeared (James A. Michener Fiction)

This was a really interesting book. Thoughout the book you don't get a real sense of whether the Nan is doing the right thing or not. She's a real person in the sense that she makes decisions and follows them through not knowing if she is right or wrong. The writing is great, but I wouldn't call it a light read.

The Wizard, the Witch & Two Girls from Jersey by Lisa Papademetriou
The Wizard, the Witch & Two Girls from Jersey

This is a lot of fun. The author has read a lot of YA fantasy and expects you have too. She knows what the conventions are and uses them to fun and interesting ends. The plot is not wildly original, but the voices of the characters are great and the names of things are quite wonderful.

I really enjoyed this book, it was an interesting take on magic and dysfunctional families. I listened to the second book "Red Glove" as an audiobook and it worked that way, too.
