A Pinch of Magic
by Michelle Harrison (Simon & Schuster Children’s, 2019); audiobook read by Nicky Diss (Simon Schuster Audio, 2019)
An assured fairy tale fantasy on the developmental cusp where MG turns to YA. The setting is grim, the story a gripping, character-driven adventure that twists genre to sidestep contrivance. Betty and her sisters have real personality, especially in Diss’s audiobook reading.
