Everything about this book drips with wonder. To say that Jessica Townsend is a once in a decade writer/storyteller is not too brave a comment.
She writes her brave lead, Morigan, with grace and while she has a shadowy past, her desire to find hope is ever present. I know there have been a lot of comparisons to Potter here, but while I think that's fair, I think that Nevermoor stands on its own, and no comparisons are needed.
I hate spoilery reviews, but I will say this. You'll fall in love with Morigan Crow. If you're an old duffer like me you will start planning your Jupiter cosplay before you finish the chapter when he is introduced (which is perhaps my favorite character introduction in a decade). And you'll never look at an old hotel or an umbrella the same.
Do your self and your young readers a favor and stuff this book beneath the Christmas tree this year.
There were some good lessons for middle graders in this book, including lessons about bullying, having differences, and judging books by their covers, so to speak. I think kids would relate to Morrigan Crow and her friend, Hawthorne. I think they would also enjoy the idea of escaping to somewhere magical and learning that there is something special about them. I wouldn’t be surprised if this new world Jessica Townsend has created becomes the next craze in middle grade fantasy fiction. Have we finally found the next Harry Potter? Only time will tell…but I’m anxious for Morrigan’s next adventure. Until then, step boldly!

In all seriousness though, this book has blown me away. I love when children are competing in a magicial world and this compition did not let me down.
The characters are so well written you feel you truely know them. There are some children you root for and some that you not so secertly hope fails. The end, even though all the clues were there, took me by surprise because Townshed does a fantastic job with the narration of the main characters point of view that you learn things as she does.
I will 110% be buying the next book, actually you can bet money that i will preorder it.
