A teenage nobody crosses a line that will change her life forever in this short coming-of-age story by number one New York Times bestselling author Lev Grossman.

Ever since her dad disappeared five years ago, Persephone has quietly walled off the feelings she’d rather not feel. There’s no room for pain or anger when you’re just trying to get through the hell that is high school. But one day, the crush of taunts and disappointments is finally too much—and a power breaks loose inside her that she never knew was there.


Lev Grossman is the number one New York Times bestselling author of the Magicians trilogy, which was adapted for television by Syfy, and the Silver Arrow novels for children. He is also the writer of the award-winning film The Map of Tiny Perfect Things.


My review for The Garden by Tomi Champion-Adeyemi



REVIEW:
This is an author that I have wanted to read his book, The Magicians, for some time.... well, this came up first so here we go!
I'm not sure how to feel about this one. I liked the way the author wrote. It was easy to read, and I wanted to know whatever I could about Persephone. The ending was rushed through though.
We do get the answers that were being sought after. So there's that, but maybe Persephone did not get the answers. It was unique in that way to tell a story, but I liked that. That ending though... le sigh.


3/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
