2010 book 7

Dianna Wynne Jones' Charmed Life
I'd never read any of Diana Wynne Jones' Chronicles of Chrestomanci series, and having enjoyed the Howl's books so much, it seemed about time. These also deal with magic--in this one, a boy and his sister are taken in by a powerful wizard. The boy is sort of sweet and clueless, and the sister is an ambitious brat, and the paths the story takes did surprise me a little, and on the whole I enjoyed it and will be reading some others in the series. B+.
