'Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula' book review

*****/***** Effortless
Amazon Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to get this during a free giveaway but will definitely be shelling out on the sequel. Despite it being a children's book I found this incredibly easy to read, and when considering the word count to other books, it is a more than respectable length which I chewed through in 2 days, which for me is an event in itself. (I am not a fast reader)

Cassidy's struggle with her newfound abilities and emotions do a lot to ground this book in reality. There are real consequences to her actions, and all the relationships, with their complicated 'doomed' teenage nature have the ring of truth. I enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed the action sequences, which managed to sing in my imagination without being over described. The villain was a little comic book, but I like to think of that as a nice splash of colour which made everything else fit. Looking forward to reading the sequel.
