#BookReview of The Rosemary Spell by @VZAuthor

The Rosemary Spell
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Clarion Books
Recommended Age: Middle Grade
Genre: Fantasy, Mystery
About the Book: Best friends Rosie and Adam find an old book with blank pages that fill with handwriting before their eyes. Something about this magical book has the power to make people vanish, even from memory. The power lies in a poem—a spell. When Adam's older sister, Shelby, disappears, they struggle to retain their memories of her as they race against time to bring her back from the void, risking their own lives in the process.

About the Author: 
Virginia Zimmerman grew up in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., though she was named for a great aunt, not for her state. When she was young, she enjoyed writing and talking to friends about books, so she decided to grow up into a person who could do those things all the time. She was an English major at Carleton College, and she went to graduate school in English at the University of Virginia. All together, she enjoyed twenty years of formal education, much of it focused on reading. 

When she finished school, she wasn’t done reading, writing and talking to friends about books, so she became an English professor at Bucknell University. This means—and she still pinches herself to make sure this is real—she gets to read and write and talk about books for a living. Most of the classes she teaches are about British literature from the nineteenth century or children’s fiction. She loves both.

Virginia also loves Catalunya, a beautiful region in the northeast corner of Spain. Her husband, Jordi, is part of a large and wonderful Catalan family, and, for twenty years, Virginia has been traveling with him to visit Barcelona and lots of picturesque villages in the mountains, the countryside and on the Mediterranean Sea. The family has become her own, and Catalunya has become her second home.

Virginia’s first home is a two-hundred-year-old house in a small town on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania, where she gets to read and write and talk about books with dear friends, inspiring students and beloved family. She lives with her husband, three children and little white dog.

Do I Recommend this book? Yes!!

Notes and Opinions: The Rosemary Spell has such an interesting concept! It was so much fun following Adam and Rosie. I love that Rosemary has a passion for books. I read it very quickly but at one point it got quite repetitive and it didn't seem to be going anywhere. It took some time for the story to move forward. The Rosemary Spell is such a magical novel that is filled with many puzzles.
