I.O. Book Tours Review & Giveaway - Family Magic by Patti Larsen

Family Magic

by Patti Larsen

Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy

Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being ordinary. That my mom baked cookies instead of brewing spells. That my dad lived with us, not on the demon plane. All I ever wanted was to be like everyone else.

I know what you're thinking. You'd die to live in my world. How cool would it be if magic was real and you could do anything?

You have no idea. Here I am in another new town, but it's the same old thing. Cheerleader bullies? How original. Friendless again? Who's surprised? I suck at fitting in. Especially when I'm in the middle of saving my family from total destruction.

My name is Sydlynn Hayle, and that's my life.

Trade you.

About the Author:
Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn't it? I'm a storyteller who hears teenager's voices so loud I have to write them down. I love sports even though they don't love me. I've dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon. 

But always, always, writing books calls me home.

I've had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It's the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands... thank you for reading.

As for the rest of it, I'm short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can't seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!!
**Received the ebook free in exchange for an honest review as part of the blog tour
I really loved this book :)  It was easy to be sucked into Syd’s life.  High school is a rough enough time without adding witch and demon problems to the mix.  She is trying so hard to be her own person on home, but fit in at school.  She is an emotional mess, but this is typical for a 16 year old girl.  I love how strong she is and that she stands up against bullying.  This book is packed with all sorts of things like high school bullies, boys, teen angst, talking cat, vampires, coven, crazy grandma, spells gone awry, and so much more. 

I recommend to all paranormal book lovers of YA age or adults.  You will not be bored reading this book.  And when I looked to see if it is a series, it is and has like 20 books.  I’m going to have to read them all!!  And I’m going to have to buy them in paperback, so I can have them for my classroom because I think the kids will love them.
