Book ReviewsMegan PeronaComment

The Apothecary by Maile Meloy

"A dose of magic can save the world."  Set in 1952 amidst the cold war, this story follows the adventure of three 14-year-olds as they solve a mysterious kidnapping, dip their toes into the world of magic and attempt to save the world.  Miss Meloy blends Russian spy intrigue, teenage emotions and just plain ol' magic into an intriguing story for kids and adults alike.  Great for middle school readers.
