From Frights to Flaws
Twelve-year-old Alyssa McCarthy can no longer stand the toughness of her uncle and wants a better life. But one day she discovers not only the existence of magic, but also a villain hunting her down. The villain uses magic and magical technology to kidnap Alyssa to the Fiji Islands. As much as she wants to go home, she has to face some dangerous challenges first. Not only that, the villain himself must also be defeated. Can Alyssa succeed, even with the help of her mentors?
Once there at the Fiji Islands, there was a lot of magical things happening as well as technology used as well. I agree with other readers that the magic and technology that the author blended together was fine but it just did not come off as smoothly or as believable. However I do give the author props with her attempts in trying. A cute book for younger readers.
