Review of Magic in the Mix

Magic in the Mix by Annie Barrows

Magic in the Mix by Annie Barrows

In this adventure a set of “twins” are sent back in time to set things right. Magic in the Mix is the sequel to The Magic Half, where Miri goes back in time to get a twin from the 1940`s, Molly. In this book, when a handy man starts tearing apart the house to rebuild it, magic begins leaking all over the place. The house they live in is old and full of magic, but nobody knows except for the twins.  Molly has to go back in time to before she was born to save her mom from dying the minute she is born. Molly has to stop herself from being born by keeping her mom from meeting her dad. Or at least that’s what she thinks. To solve the real problem they have to go back and save their brothers who accidentally walked into the Civil War thinking it was a reenactment.   

Magic in the Mix is a really well written book that is sad, adventurous, suspenseful, and exciting to read. If you haven`t read the first book it still makes sense. I recommend it to people who like historical and fun books. I`m not a big fan of historical books, but this book made me want to read more historical books. It is one of my favorite books because it`s suspenseful, and I think you`ll love it too.
