Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino has learned the painful truth that she — like her mother, grandmother, and new friends Tom and Jay-Tee — must face a choice between using the magic that lives in her blood and dying young, or refusing to use the magic and losing her mind. Now a new threat leaves Reason stranded alone in New York City, struggling to control a power she barely understands. But could the danger she faces also hold the key to saving her life?

Magic Lessons is a stunning follow-up to Larbalestier's debut novel, Magic or Madness, which earned multiple starred reviews and a spot on the Locus 2005 Recommended Reading List, along with being named a Best Book of the Year by School Library Journal and the Young Adult Round Table of the TLA.

Review:

"Readers who start with the first installment will likely be more well grounded and enjoy this novel more." Children's Literature

Review:

"Those who have read Magic or Madness...will be anxious for this one, and will not be disappointed." VOYA

Review:

"Larbalestier creates complex relationships among her characters, and their realistic flaws, combined with the sense of danger throughout, make this a good choice for even reluctant readers." School Library Journal

Shoshana, May 17, 2008 (view all comments by Shoshana)
Part 2 of the Magic or Madness trilogy. This volume is not a stand-alone as it relies on the reader's knowledge of the first book and willingness to wait for the third for the resolution of most plot points. Character development continues, as does the complexity of the situation and the difficulty of knowing what the best choice of action is. It becomes clear in this installment that a major thematic point is teenagers' discovery of adults' failures and inconsistency.
