Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7–10—Doon, which owes its name and draws many of its influences from the musical Brigadoon, begins with Veronica, who is spending the summer in Scotland with her best friend, Mackenna. In the attic of Mackenna's late Aunt Gracie's house, they uncover a wealth of secrets, including an enigmatic set of rings and Gracie's journal. The cryptic book describes the land of Doon, a place straight out of a fairy tale--complete with lush green hills and handsome princes. Soon the girls are accidentally transported to the magical realm where they met a dreamy pair of princes and do battle with an ancient evil witch determined to rule the land. The descriptions of Scotland and Doon are rich and vibrant, transporting readers alongside Veronica and Mackenna. Unfortunately, the characters aren't as fully fleshed out. Both girls are continuously self-deprecating, which some readers may find grating, while their male suitors are one-dimensional. Despite some too-convenient plot elements, those looking for a bit of escapism will still find this book to be an enjoyable read.—Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OH

From Booklist

Veronica feels like nothing is going right in her life—that is, until her friend Mackenna magically gives her a ticket to Scotland to spend the summer in her family’s cottage. Aunt Gracie’s bequest helps Veronica escape her mother’s bad relationships and tragic choice in men, and Mackenna’s love for the village of Alloway means that they grow closer to the bridge to the otherworldly land of Doon, where time ceases to exist and larger-than-life characters, such as the hunky princes Jamie and Duncan MacCrae, raise the girls’ pulse rates. While some readers may be confused by the alternating chapters featuring Veronica and Kenna’s very similar voices, musical-theater fans will rejoice to see two heroines so well versed in their world, who drop references to many well-loved Broadway productions as they stumble their way through a medieval village, out of the mists and out of time. The friends are tempted in various ways, but their fates may prove very different. Give this romance to Twilight fans who can’t get enough of “Will they? Won’t they?” plot twists. Grades 10-12. --Erin Downey Howerton
