But Liberty Frye is about to discover that she is not just your average girl.
When a cryptic note from long-lost relatives arrives, the news it brings flips Libby’s small-town existence upside down. Soon, she finds herself lured to a foreign land where retired witches, talking bats and geriatric World War II pilots await. It’s up to Libby to unravel the sinister plot that brought her there in the first place, but in so doing, she’ll uncover a shocking secret that will change her life forever … if she survives the challenge.
What I liked: I generally enjoyed this book. It was a bit confusing in places, but I think it was just because I was reading too fast. There was nothing that I believe should deter middle-graders from reading this. Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen is a solid read with an interesting storyline and a fun plot. I’ll be adding it to my children’s TBR list 😉 .
What I didn’t like: The book’s intro features a drunk neighbor and I almost put the book down thinking this had been improperly categorized, however, luckily I read a few more pages and found that my first impression was terribly inaccurate!
