#BookTour: The Journal of Angela Ashby by @lkgg @JeanBookNerd #Giveaway

About the Book:

A Middle Grade “Death Note”
“With great power comes great responsibility.” ~Voltaire

I have great power.

That’s what she told me. The old fortune-teller at the school carnival.

I thought I was doing the right thing … with the magic journal she gave me. 

But nothing could prepare me for what happened next.

Or, for what I unleashed.

At a school carnival, a mysterious fortune-teller gives twelve-year-old Angela Ashby a journal and warns her to use it wisely. 

Nothing prepares Angela for the journal’s power—when she pours her heart onto its pages her desires come true.

She tests the journal by conjuring a gnome, a unicorn, and a farting fairy and then uses it to stop the school bullies in their tracks. 

But the unintended consequences alienate her best friend and puts her favorite teacher in danger of losing her job.

After she shares her deepest desire of all—that her parents get back together—her adversary steals the journal, and Angela fears she will use it to bring mayhem to the entire school if she doesn’t get it back.

Recommended Age: Middle Grade
Genre: Paranormal

About the Author: 

Liana Gardner is the award-winning author of 7th Grade Revolution and the Misfit McCabeseries. Daughter of a rocket scientist and an artist, Liana combines the traits of both into a quirky yet pragmatic writer and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface. Engaged in a battle against leukemia and lymphoma, Liana spends much of her time at home, but allows her imagination to take her wherever she wants to go.

She fostered her love of writing after reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and discovering she had a great deal in common with the character Jo. The making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for her to know she and Jo would have been kindred spirits.

Liana volunteers with high school students through the International Trade Education Programs (ITEP). ITEP unites business people and educators to prepare students for a meaningful place in the world of tomorrow. Working in partnership with industry and educators, ITEP helps young people “think globally and earn locally.”    



My Review: This is Endy! I am a die hard Death Note fan so when I saw that this one was a middle grade death note I wanted to try it and it was awesome!! I really loved all the descriptions and how the author wrote it so I could really see the story in my mind. During this book all the characters grow and change and I really enjoyed the depth at which the author went for this middle grade story becuase a lot of times that doesn't happen. The family dynamics in this book were so vivid as well. This was a great blend of magic, paranormal, and real life. It really begs the quote be careful what you wish for!
