Daphne and The Mysterious Girls Secret Bathroom Society

Daphne and The Mysterious Girls Secret Bathroom Society - Robert  Shields http://squigglesreviews.blogspot.com/2012/05/daphne-and-mysterious-girls-secret.html


OVERALL IMPRESSION: I really love the ideas and concepts behind the book. Magic and witchcraft is described in a way that I have never heard before, which was a nice change. I particularly like the idea behind who gets to be witches and why some people aren't.

I feel like the story could have been done better. There were parts that I would zone out during, particularly the history part where Daphne was reading the magic book, but that could have been due to my lack of interest in history.

To me the story had a middle grade feel to it, but there are some instances of bad language, so this one may be more appropriate for older middle grade children, around 12 or 13.

CHARACTERS: I would have liked to see more of the development between the main character, Daphne, and her crush, Kyle, but I feel that this might occur in future books in the series.

My favorite character in the book was Amanda, Daphne's sister. I just liked her personality, she seemed like someone that I would enjoy hanging out with.

COVER: I'm not a fan of the cover. This is definitely not a cover that would catch my eye and make me want to pick up this book over others.

*I received an ebook copy of this book from the author for review.
