Oh, boy, this book was incredible.
I'm struggling with the middle grade genre lately but this was really realy good.
Any time i read the sentence "the new harry potter"series i cringe hard but i understand now what they mean. The nostalgic vibe, the compelling atmosphere.
Jessica Townsend became a must-read-everything-she-writes author and i can't wait to start the second book. Her writing kept me in suspense, it gave me the "can't put it down" feeling i desperately crave from a book.
I especially adore we don't know everything yet, we have so many mysteries to discover and I'M HERE FOR IT GIMME GIMME GIMME. I may have found my new favorite middle grade series and i hope it will never end.

This was sooooo much fun - and the Harry Potter comparisons make sense! A cast of quirky characters, a magical house setting, and a self-deprecating and funny main character = a recipe for success. Yes, I guessed the twists, but I don't really expect to be surprised like that in Middle Grade, do I?

Highly recommend this and I can't wait to read the sequel to see where the story is going! ( )

What an enjoyable story! I feel like it's mix of HP and a Goblet of Fire and Mary Poppins for some reason (I just finished listening to the audiobook and watched Mary Poppins Returns)
Loved it! ( )

I can't quite believe that this Sat in my tbr for so long without being read. A wonderful, engaging read, full of humour, excitement and drama. ( )
