  • Dancing and Magic? Yes please!

    Music Boxes is filled with beautiful language, descriptive settings, and just the right amount of ballet terms and techniques. I learned so much about the art of ballet! Lindsay is a relatable character with dreams and determination, and a healthy dedication to it. Still, her uncertainty hinders her confidence, and young readers will identify with her. Madame Destinee is a fabulous villain! Vivid and vicious, in the most dazzling of ways. With its engaging sense of mystery and intrigue, and a cast of international characters, Music Boxes will enchant you. DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary ARC for review purposes only.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Enchantingly Twisted!

    A twisted tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last spin of the music box! The writing flows with ease and the gentle yet enthusiastic voice of Lindsay. She’s the older sister in the family, and if you’re the oldest child you know what that takes – a strong inner core, willingness to endure more responsibility, and the grace to lead. But Lindsay’s younger sibling, Bridget, doesn’t need any of that from her. Bridget is a child prodigy, a talented violinist at the age of eight already accepted at a prestigious school for the brightest artists respective of their field. And what does Lindsay have? She has a love of dance that must be put on hold because her family relocates so Bridget can attend her prestigious school. Lindsay is happy for her younger sister, but there’s this ping in her gut whenever she thinks about what her sister has and what she’s had to give up. As the story moves forward, the dynamic between siblings becomes more complex, and the theme of jealousy is explored, which I really enjoyed. When Lindsay meets a seasoned dance instructor that offers her lessons, she’s beyond thrilled. But this instructor has strange stipulations such as keeping her lessons from her parents and her participation in a show each night at midnight. If you’re thinking that something odd and maybe even sinister is going on here, you’d be correct. And it gets weirder from there, only in a way cool way weirder! Drecker has come up with an eerie twist on a beloved toy from years gone by. The music boxes play a huge part in the story and will make you question the one you (or your parents) had as a child. Upper elementary and middle school readers will love the mystery of the music boxes, the diabolical dance instructor, and the private dance world Drecker has created.

    Thanks for your feedback!
