Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—Middle schooler Ava always seems to be nervous about something: her math quiz, an upcoming field trip to an adventure park, the possibility of her parents divorcing. When she uses an old blue pencil found in a junk drawer to write a question in the margin of her math quiz, a voice that only she can hear tells her the correct answer. It turns out that the pencil can answer factual questions of all kinds, from what people think and feel queries about schoolwork. Ava and her friend Sophie use the magical power of the pencil to try to help the elderly people in Ava's grandpa's old age home and in the process make discoveries about her grandpa's thoughts and wishes. So far so good, but when Ava discovers through the pencil that her mother has breast cancer and that her mother is about to postpone her mammogram so that she can accompany Ava on her adventure park trip, Ava finds herself having to call on all her inner resources to ensure that her mother goes for her test. In the process, she surprises herself at what she is able to do. When Ava realizes that the magic pencil is inhabited by a piece of her long-dead grandmother's spirit, she helps to make her grandfather's last moments happier. Ava is a sympathetic and well-rounded character, and the relationship, conflicts included, between her and the more outgoing Sophie rings true. The writing is smooth and the dialogue believable. VERDICT Firmly planted in realistic fiction with a single fantastical element, this story will appeal to Wendy Mass fans as well as those who love Messner's previous novels.—Sue Giffard, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, New York

Review

“Messner (Manhunt) has created a relatable, sympathetic character in anxious Ava, and her story is at its best when Ava's life remains centered around the norms of her school, friends, and multigenerational family.” ―Publishers Weekly

“The lesson here--not only about the values of not knowing, but about managing oneself in the face of uncertainty--will resonate and, hopefully, inspire.” ―BCCB

“Messner captures the anxieties of middle school girls. . . Would work well to spark discussions about problems that may plague middle school students.” ―Library Media Connection

“Ava is a sympathetic and well-rounded character, and the relationship, conflicts included, between her and the more outgoing Sophie rings true. The writing is smooth and the dialogue believable. Firmly planted in realistic fiction with a single fantastical element, this story will appeal to Wendy Mass fans as well as those who love Messner's previous novels.” ―School Library Journal

“It's no surprise that Kate Messner's magic pen could write a charming, moving, funny, and ultimately very surprising story about a magic pencil!” ―Wendy Mass, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of 11 BIRTHDAYS

“Combines a fascinating concept with page-turning suspense. A wild roller-coaster ride.” ―Margaret Peterson Haddix on WAKE UP MISSING

“Loved it! Mystery, intrigue, danger, and creepy futuristic science set in today's world? Yes, please!” ―Lisa McMann, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of WAKE and THE UNWANTEDS on WAKE UP MISSING

“Laced with humor and heart . . . an insightful and affecting read.” ―Booklist on THE BRILLIANT FALL OF GIANNA Z
