With the blog tour for The Hungry Family well underway, I'd like to thank all those who have participated thus far!
If you've come to find the next couple of reviewers, here's a list:
One of the wonderful things about being an author is that you get to work with other authors. I have a couple favorite middle grade authors and Braden Bell is one of them. His Middle School Magic trilogy has been an exciting story to share with Mr. 12 as he has just entered Jr. High this year.
The story starts with The Kindling where Conner, Lexa, and Melanie first discover their powers of light. As they learn to control and harness the light within, they battle the darkness in the world.
Moving on to book two, Penumbras, the treachery of those who forward the cause of darkness knows no end. Conner, Lexa, and Melanie are taken deeper into the world of Magi and are called upon to protect their school.
In Luminescence, not only do the kids face their fears, they have to look deep inside to conquer the troubles between them to unite as the strongest light force ever known. Family secrets are reveled, bad guys are held accountable, and traps are set and sprung. It's an edge of your seat read!
I highly recommend this series for middle grade readers and their parents. They are clean, fun, and take a good look at some of the issues that Jr. High students face. Mr. 12 and I had some good discussions about character development as well as teenage development.
