I received a copy of FIONA THORN AND THE CARAPACEM SPELL BY Jen Barton in exchange for an honest review. I feel awful that it took me this long to read, but maybe it’s a good thing. My younger cousin fell in love with the cover – and the cover is spectacular – as well as the description on the back of the book. I have been reading it out loud to her. I read it quicker myself, but I wanted to wait to review until I had her opinion too. This is a young adult book, and while I love young adult books, I’m now a full fledged adult. She I still a young adult.
We both loved it. She told me she wishes Fiona Tjorn was a real person, but she would like her for a friend. I found this book to have plenty of role models, as well as well-rounded villains. Many moments had me laughing and many others had me on the edge of my seat.
This is easily a five star book!
