Book Review “Charming Life of Izzy Malone” by Jenny Lundquist

Apr 02

Isabella Malone, Izzy for short, has one thing on her middle-grade agenda – to be part of the Dandelion Paddlers, a rowing club. She has a few problems, one being she visits the school principal, a lot. The other, her overachiever sister who casts a big shadow over Izzy. Her parents have had enough and decide to enroll Izzy in charm school. When the first assignment arrives by mail, and it’s not exactly what Izzy thought it would be, but if she completes the task she will get a cool charm to add to a bracelet. Being Izzy though, the tasks don’t go easy, and soon her hopes of getting all the charms and being a Dandelion Paddler begin to sink.

Fun, can’t put it down story of the underdog, the kid who seems to be misunderstood, friendship, family, and dreams.
