Book Review

Author:April Genevieve Tucholke

Pages: 256

 “In a hundred years, who will care about my unicorn underwear? Who cares right now? There are bigger things to think about.

Bigger things like what?

Battles and wars. Lost causes and lost loves. Unsolved mysteries and magical rings and Here Be Dragons. Fairy Paths. Child-eating witches and child-saving witches. Tinder boxes and saucer-eyed dogs.”

While perusing the shelves of Barnes and Noble, this book caught my eye. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but sometimes it’s all it takes for me to delve right in. This book is about a boy and two girls. Wink, Poppy, and Midnight. A hero, a villain, a liar. Who’s who?


Wink reminded me of Jerry Spinelli’s Stargirl. They are very similar in terms of personality and mysteriousness. The story captivated me in such a way that I read it in one sitting. It was truly magical.  Do you buy any books based on its cover?
