Family Magic: 1

Family Magic: 1 - Patti Larsen What did you think of the ending? Most series rush to an ending where you'll have to reread at least some of the book to make sure you got the open ending right. This book was different. The ending was good and although it was open ended in some ways, leaving room for the next book, most characters and issues were concluded without any questions.

What did you think of the story structure? Some parts of the story dragged for me. Even as the emotions and settings changed, it took me till at least quarter of the book to be drawn into the story. I would love to know what inspired the idea of Sassafras.

Is the overall POV consistent? I've read quite a few YA books that switch POV and then forget to switch them back so it becomes confusing and leaves the reader clueless. Patti Larsen did an excellent job making sure her characters' voices were not overshadowed by hers.
