Miss Ellicott’s School for the Magically Minded
by Sage Blackwood
Grades 4 & up
Chantel is a pretty talented sorceress-in-training at Miss Ellicott’s School for Magical Maidens. She is good at summoning, and even has a snake as a familiar. She is pretty good at deportment, but only on the outside. When Miss Ellicott and the other sorceresses disappear, Chantel, her fellow student Anna, and their friend Bowser decide to forget about deportment and take matters into their own hands. What they discover is that life inside their walled city of Lightening Pass is not what they have been told it is. When they find themselves outside the walls for the first time ever, they must reevaluate the history they have been taught. The choices that they make will change things for everyone on both sides of the wall. Highly recommended for grades 4 & up.
