Series Spotlight - Magic or Madness
From the Sydney, Australia home of a grandmother she believes is a witch, fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino is magically transported to New York City, where she discovers that friends and foes can be hard to distinguish.
Fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino has learned the painful truth that she—like her mother, grandmother, and new friends Tom and Jay-Tee—must face a choice between using the magic that lives in her blood and dying young, or refusing to use the magic and losing her mind. Now a new threat leaves Reason stranded alone in New York City, struggling to control a power she barely understands. But could the danger she faces also hold the key to saving her life?
Magic Lessons is a stunning follow-up to Larbalestier's debut novel, Magic or Madness, which earned multiple starred reviews and a spot on the Locus 2005 Recommended Reading List, along with being named a Best Book of the Year by School Library Journal and the Young Adult Round Table of the TLA.
In the third and final installment in the Magic or Madness trilogy, only Reason can find answers within her family's magic to save everyone that matters most to her.
Magic's Child is the fantastically gripping conclusion to a trilogy that launched to multiple starred reviews, earning spots on the 2006 BBYA final list, and the Locus 2005 and 2006 Recommended Reading Lists.
