Majix is the engaging journey of a teen girl. She's being forced out of her home and into the home of an aunt she never met before. She's angry and frustrated, and tries to use her magic to get revenge. But through-out her journey in this new city, she will soon discover that the universe has another plan in mind. This was a fun light-hearted tale, that will teach Kestrel that the universe really does have her best interests at heart, and that even the most unexpected people can end up doing a lot of good for your life.
This book was definitely written for a younger target audience, but I still really enjoyed going back to those awkward days of high school, and I can't help but wish that I had an awesome aunt like hers to help me along the way. There really was some great characters in this book. There was fun references to the occult, other religions, and other's practices, but all handled tastefully.
There was times the book seemed a little bland to me, but I was still engaged with what was happening to the characters, and it all came together well in the end. It was a quick read that would be fun for middle school aged children to dive into.
