2014 book 159

Jaclyn Moriarty's The Spellbook of Listen Taylor
Jaclyn Moriarty writes such weird and charming books! This one is definitely the weirdest, though I liked it just the same. It's about a complicated family with a Family Secret (which they meet weekly to discuss), and the seventh-grade girl in the family who discovers a spellbook (though the spells are all pretty unusual and may or may not be working). For what I think is supposed to be a YA book, there's a lot of focus on the adult characters, but I appreciated that. And I loved how things wrapped up, even if it was all kind of silly. B+.
