Book Review - The Incredible Magic of Being

The Incredible Magic of Being

About the Book
Some might say Julian is sheltered. But he lives large, and his eternal optimism allows him to see infinite possibilities wherever he looks.

Despite his optimism, he is anxious about his stressed family falling apart. Even his ability to "uni-sense" what's happening with his sister is gone. If he can make his family focus on the magic in the universe, surely they'll appreciate life again. Now that they are moving from Washington, DC, to rural Maine, Julian can use his beloved telescope without any light pollution. He can discover a comet, name it for himself, and show his family how they're all truly connected.

As Julian searches the night sky, he encounters a force that may drive his plan apart. His neighbor, Mr. X, could bring an end to his parents' dream of opening their B&B. Could one negative force unravel everything? An avid student of science, Julian understands that there is much about the universe that we don't yet know. Who is to say what's possible and what's not?

My Take on the Book
My girls love to read and my almost 13 year old and I both read this and we loved the way in which the book has something for readers of all ages. My daughter mentioned that there were things about the main character Julian that she could relate to, which is always a good sign in the life of a pre-teen. The book captures what it is like to uproot yourself and move to a new place. The author also has fully developed the characters within the book into ones that you will love to get to know.  This was a well written book that is current and a great read!
