Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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

Review:

"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

Review:

"[T]he lively cast will carry patient readers through situations that are, in turn, hilarious and scary." Booklist

Review:

"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
