Michaela’s Gift

By Cordelia Dinsmore

120 Pages – Ages 9+

Published by Musa Publishing on June 14, 2012

Michaela couldn’t wait to learn about her special gift. Her family told her that every girl on her father’s side gets a gift when they turn twelve. The gift the girls get is no ordinary gift, they get a magical power. Michaela is very excited about it and is able to talk to her Aunt Sharon about it, but her mom doesn’t want to hear anything about the gift. Michaela and her mother argue and her mom says there is no such things as special powers. Michaela knows what she wants to do with her gift but somehow has to convince her mom.

I liked the uniqueness of the plot in this story. It isn’t the action-packed adventure I usually get into, but it was a nice read. I thought Michaela’s “gift” was very cool (I don’t want to give it away) and I wish I had that gift! I really liked the Michaela character. She seemed nice and a super fast learner and I like that in main characters. Ms. Dinsmore’s writing style kept me interested in the story and kept me reading. The book is a clean read would be good for young advanced readers. I think kids 9+ would like this book!

I give “Michaela’s Gift” 4 out of 5 bookworms!

    Mom loves a good, strong girl character in a book. I’m a good strong girl character OUT of a book. Maybe that’s why she likes me, too!!

    Love and licks,

    Fast learner with a good head on her shoulder, sounds like a great lead character.
