A Tale of Highly Unusual Magic by Lisa Papademetriou

What self respecting young girl wouldn’t love a magic book?  Ok I wanted one of these books and I’m an adult.  Such a cool idea.  Kai and Leila both have a magic book and while they don’t realize it together they are revealing a true story and one that will change their lives.  What a cool adventure to have on summer vacation.    Leila spends the summer with her great aunt who drives a monster truck and is anything but the fragile woman Leila expected, and Kai is in Pakistan visiting relatives and feeling out of place.  Leila is befriended by Doodle who loves bugs especially a rare butterfly, but she is bullied by the son of her father’s boss who runs the coffin factory.  Oh yes see the oddity already?  An awesome book for readers of all ages it blends the past and the present in quirky was and is full of quirky characters and yep you guessed it a touch of magic.  I loved this one.
