    I’d recommend this book for ages 12+

    As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m not normally a fan of YA fiction but something about the synopsis of this book caught my eye. I do like a good fairytale retelling and this book featured Aladdin’s lamp, as well as some more serious themes. The writing in this book is truly lovely. Hannah, the main character, is a 14 year old girl who has recently lost her father and is understandably struggling to come to terms with her life without him. This book actually reminds me a lot of the book/film ‘Bridge to Terabithia’ in the way that reality and magic are merged so it’s hard to keep track of what’s real, but that’s the beauty of it. The action sequences are great fun and flow brilliantly, and the characters that Hannah meets along the way are interesting and not too stereotypical for the Aladdin connection. This book is very difficult to review because the synopsis gives so little away, so I’m trying to skirt around the plot – so what I would like to say is that despite being a book about a teenager losing a parent, I’m not entirely sure how helpful it would be for a teen going through a similar circumstance. It could be cathartic but personally I’d find it too sad! It’s the story of a young girl coming to terms with her grief, but her methods aren’t exactly ones that I’d recommend… I’d recommend this book for ages 12+, it’s a nice and easy read and has a little bit of something for everyone.
