Review: Upside-Down Magic

Upside-Down Magic Upside-Down Magic by Sarah Mlynowski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nory has wonky magic despite her best efforts to control it. Can she be like her brother, sister and father whose magic fits into society's norms?

This fantastic chapter book has a diverse cast of characters and speaks to the bullying and prejudice that children with disabilities--learning or otherwise--face on a daily basis. This topic is not heavy-handed, but obvious, and is dealt with sensitivity and aplomb. This is truly a series I confidently recommend for its excellent writing as well as its humor, ability to deal with difficult issues (race, death of parent, disability) and overall fun magic.
