Middle Grade Monday: Granted by John David Anderson

I can’t believe it’s Middle Grade Monday Already! In case you missed my last week announcement about this, I decided to make this weekly post where I’m gonna talk about one MG book every monday.

If you love MG books as much as I do, feel free to participate to spread the love of middle-grade books. You just have to choose one book that you’ve read or the one in your TBR and tell us a little bit about the book, and don’t forget to link back to me!

And today I want to talk to you a little bit about a MG fantasy book that I’ve read a couple of months ago.


35068662Everyone who wishes upon a star, or a candle, or a penny thrown into a fountain knows that you’re not allowed to tell anyone what you’ve wished for. But even so, there is someone out there who hears it. 

In a magical land called the Haven lives a young fairy named Ophelia Delphinium Fidgets. Ophela is no ordinary fairy—she is a Granter: one of the select fairies whose job it is to venture out into the world and grant the wishes of unsuspecting humans every day.

It’s the work of the Granters that generates the magic that allows the fairies to do what they do, and to keep the Haven hidden and safe. But with worldwide magic levels at an all-time low, this is not as easy as it sounds. On a typical day, only a small fraction of the millions of potential wishes gets granted.

Today, however, is anything but typical. Because today, Ophelia is going to get her very first wish-granting assignment.

And she’s about to discover that figuring out how to truly give someone what they want takes much more than a handful of fairy dust.

lineOphelia, an ambitious and perfectionist little fairy, have finally given her first mission, her first wish to grant. She prepared for this moment for her entire life, but the journey she’s about to take is not as easy as it seems. Ophelia was faced with so many obstacles in her journey, she was forced to get out of her comfort zone, and surprisingly made an unusual friendship.

I love Anderson’s writing, it’s perfect for middle grade. Simple, enjoyable, and easy to understand. It’s full of pun and humorous line.

It’s so hard not to love this book, the friendship, the charactersa and the adventure are very well written!

I actually have written a review about this book, it you’re interested in reading it, you can click this link!
