Review
I didn't have high expectations of this book, but Rusty Fischer surprised me. It was fast paced & Maddy was funny in a Jim Butcher/Kevin Hearne kind of way. RF had just the right amount of umph in his story to keep someone like me, a middle aged adult male, reading & not wanting to put it down. This book is obviously written toward the teen girl audience & because of that I'm not interested in reading others in the series regardless of how much I like this author.  Search in the Library Catalog
