Synopsis:

In Abby’s world, magic isn’t anything special: it’s a part of everyday life. So when Abby learns that she has zero magical abilities, she’s branded an "Ord"—ordinary, bad luck, and quite possibly a danger to society. The outlook for kids like Abby isn’t bright. Many are cast out by their families, while others are sold to treasure hunters (ordinary kids are impervious to spells and enchantments). Luckily for Abby, her family enrolls her in a school that teaches ordinary kids how to get around in a magical world. But with treasure-hunting kidnappers and carnivorous goblins lurking around every corner, Abby’s biggest problem may not be learning how to be ordinary—it’s whether or not she’s going to survive the school year!

My Thoughts

Discover a world where being normal means being different.
This was an imaginative and fun new read that had me hooked from the very first page. The story was very descriptive and really made you feel as if you were a part of it. There are tons of new characters that will have you both laughing and worried. It is almost impossible not to get engrossed in this enchanting new world the author weaved.
Abby goes through many of the same situations that young kids go through even though her world is a bit different. She is still learning about whom she is and how to fit in so I believe a lot of readers will be able to relate to her just like I did.
Ordinary Magic is a great new read that children and adults alike are sure to love.
