Appolonia Bramblewood is Almost Magic. She’s also a fun, quirky twelve-year old with the usual assortment of teen problems like tough exams and an annoyingly perfect older sister. But coming from an ancient magical family, Apple also faces some pretty fantastic ordeals. Who else would have the wish fairy crash through her roof? Or an alien enforcer take over her philodendron? Thankfully, Apple has her cranky wand, Wanda, and her family to help her solve these remarkable problems and to teach her to stand on her own two magical feet.

Kathleen Bullock puts a new twist on growing up with Almost Magic. It’s a perfect addition to any young fantasy enthusiast’s library. I can’t wait to read more tales from Apple’s journal!
