So, basically I teamed up with Eileen @ Singing & Reading in the Rain to do a mega fun Review Swap. We chose Born of Illusion [OUT TOMORROW!]. So if you're here looking for my normal blurbings, you're gonna have to head over HERE to find them! I've got Leeny's thoughts here! YAAAY!
Anna Van Housen is thirteen the first time she breaks her mother out of jail. By sixteen she’s street smart and savvy, assisting her mother, the renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, and easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums and mentalists in 1920’s New York City. Handcuffs and sleight of hand illusions have never been much of a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother, who will stop at nothing to gain her ambition of becoming the most famous medium who ever lived. But when a strange, serious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing her to a secret society that studies people with gifts like hers, he threatens to reveal the secrets Anna has fought so hard to keep, forcing her to face the truth about her past. Could the stories her mother has told her really be true? Could she really be the illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician of all?
And now....LEEN MACHINE!
Hello everybody! It's Eileen (from Singing and Reading in the Rain) and Hinky (my name for Inky!) and I are doing a review swap! Of course, I'd much rather recommend Hinky's review, since mine are always kind of boring. BUT. I did try to spruce it up a bit. Not that it worked very well.
4 Stars from Eileen!
Eileen is the Twitter Queen, spazz ball of awesome behind the blog Singing & Reading in the Rain. As you may have guessed she loves to read ALL the books and sing ALL the songs. (Find her awesome covers on YouTube!) She'll talk to everyone and has her own style that makes her the coolest Spazzy Alligator around! Go check out her blog!
