Phoebe meets Marigold when she accidentally hits her with a rock. Magical misadventures follow as the unicorn whose favorite activity is staring at herself in a pond becomes best friends with this scrappy, nerdy kid that isn't above asking for a little magical aid for her problems, even when it inevitably goes wrong. Like Calvin and Hobbes for the 21st century.

If you put the Muppets in a theme park and added the heart of Steven Universe and some paranormal energy, you'd get Deadendia. It's an awesome mixture of humor, friendship, self-discovery, and drama with flawed characters you will love as much as your best friends. Heart-warming, heartbreaking, heart-pounding, and heartfelt!

I'm an adult, and I should read this keeping in mind the importance of education, and how things that seemed hard years ago weren't that hard in hindsight. But that being said I, like the protagonist, spent many, many days in grade school doing homework from the moment I got home until I went to bed. So I found this book extremely satisfying.

This book shares the moving tale of a young girl dealing with her strict religious family's reaction to her sister's sin, which ended in her being sent away. Trying to come to terms with the situation, she begins writing her sister letters and ends up finding herself along the way. This book deals with heavy subject matters and I would not recommend it to children under 11.
