This book was a fun and easy read. The main character, Ivy Gamble, was quite likable and pretty relatable. She's struggled with the fact that her sister lives in this magical paradise and she does not have the same abilities. I think the best part of the book was how it portrayed what the reality of magic would be like. Even though the synopsis sounds similar to Harry Potter, it's not even comparable. This story shows what teens would ACTUALLY do with their magic, which I really enjoyed. I also really liked the authors writing style; I would definitely pick up their other work in the future. Something I was not too fond of was the pacing. The story takes place over a week's span, but it feels like much longer. If you are not a fan of detective stories and the process of detective work, this is definitely not for you.
