The Candy Shop War by Brandon Mull
Title: The Candy Shop War
Author: Brandon Mull
Genre: Mid Grade Fantasy
Premise: When fifth-graders Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon meet the owner of the new candy store in town and are given a magical candy that endows them with super powers, they find that along with its benefits there are also dangerous consequences. (King County Library System)
Opinions: This is a fun read. The writing is a little simple, but is perfect for the pre-teen readers out there to read on their own. One of the best parts of this book is that the villains are not stupid. They are intelligent and they force the heroes to step far out of their comfort zone to deal with situations that would try an adult. This is a fun and imaginative read and I definitely recommend it if you are trying to gets your kids to enjoy reading.
