likable characters - simple suspense - ok world building - while there is room to develop the story further, it wasn't quite intense enough or personal enough to draw me into another title ( )

A mostly cute but also subversive story in which it's not so much what you can magic or how strongly, but how imaginatively. Our 14 year old protagonist is seriously pissed that the adults neither prevented the problems nor stepped up to solve them, which is, in my experience, not the usual YA attitude. ( )

Mona, a fourteen-year-old orphan living with her aunt and uncle at their bakery, has minor magic: she’s good with bread (and, as it turns out, dough and sourdough starter). When she finds a dead body in the bakery one morning and is accused of the murder by the Duchess’s anti-magic councilor, she’s swept up into a larger world of treachery and threatened invasion. It’s a good adventure, though apparently too dark for Kingfisher’s alter ego, children’s book author Ursula Vernon. ( )
