Wizard's Holiday: The Seventh Book in the Young Wizards Series (Young Wizards #07)by Diane Duane
Synopses & Reviews
Rest and relaxation — that's what Nita thinks she's going to get when her little sister, Dairine, signs her up for a wizardly cultural exchange program, sending Nita and her partner-wizard Kit halfway across the galaxy over spring break.
But nothing about wizardry — not even vacation — is ever quite that simple.
Back home, Dairine and her dad have to cope with their side of the exchange: three young wizards who've just moved in and are eager to start experiencing a strange alien culture...Earth.
"A great series that only gets better. Essential for libraries that already own the series, and those that don't should buy all the books." KLIATT
"While the narrative moves at a more leisurely pace than in preceding novels, the presentation of imaginative scenarios and challenges that are anything but clear-cut provide enough interest for fans of the series. New readers will have incentive to seek out the earlier books." School Library Journal
"[T]he lively cast will carry patient readers through situations that are, in turn, hilarious and scary." Booklist
"The story is...lighter than the preceding books, which should appeal to a much wider audience, both in age and in gender. Readers interested in books about wizards will appreciate one that offers not only a serious consideration of the use of magic but also its users." VOYA
