Poppy Mayberry, The Monday (Nova Kids #1)

Poppy Mayberry, The Monday (Nova Kids #1) 

My Review:

 I'll be honest, I was drawn to the artwork for this book. The story intrigued me, and I decided to give it a chance. It is aimed at the 9 and above age group. It is a magical fantasy story.

Poppy Mayberry isn't your average school student, but neither are the other residents of the town of Nova. After a few little mistakes, she finds herself in the headmaster's office and shipped off to summer school. Could it get any worse? Ow Yes! The girl she doesn't get along with will be joining her and they are even sharing a room!

So you ask "What is so special about the town of Nova?" Well, the day of the week you were born can hold your future. You see the people of this town have special abilities, and the weekday you were born determines what it will be. Poppy needs a little help with her gift and hopes the summer school will help her have better control. Poppy is a Monday and this means she has telekinesis ability. Most people are naturals at their talent, but some like Poppy just need some extra practice. She may not want to go to summer school, but it may be what she needs.

Ellie her new roommate can read minds. She is at the summer school for relying on her gifts too much. The pair needs to set their differences aside and work together if they want to survive the summer.

This is a fun story with magic and friendship. It's perfect for the age group it's aimed at, and the second book is out on the 10th October 2017. This can be read as a standalone and is a complete story.
