I love this series! I'm reading with my 8 year old, and we both love the characters and the story. In the world of these books, kids get their magic at about 10 years old. They could be fluxers, flyers, fuzzies...or their magic could be the sort that isn't easily categorized, upside down magic that behaves differently than the usual. This book emphasizes acceptance of differences, but takes it a step further, to celebrating and embracing the wonder of being different. Great story, great message!
