Horn Book Review

Aza is happily back on Earth with the people she loves, but she can't stop thinking about the magical world in the sky she discovered she's from (Magonia). When disaster strikes, she has no choice but to return to Magonia. Aza's snarky teenage voice is a refreshing counterpoint to the book's soaring fantasy elements, but the hurried pace may leave readers breathless. (c) Copyright 2017.
