I just seriously could not stop reading, I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was fun to read, characters were great. Miranda, Neeta and Billie are quite the trio. It’s a perfect YA fantasy full of Magic, Growing, Adventures and more. Definitely excited to read the next book.

This is the first book by A.D. Brazeau that I have read, and I was glad that I picked it up. If you are looking for an easy book to read, get this one. I am ready to keep reading this one to see where the story is going to go with Miranda and her friends are going to go. The author wrote a well, but I wish it had a little more action. The author did end the story in a good place to be able to continue with what is going on. I would read them in order to be able to keep up with it is going on. I will be on the look out for more by this author.

The Magical Summer of Miranda Stone is a wonderfully written YA/Fantasy that pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself lost in the pages and read on one afternoon. This author knocked it out of the park with this one along with amazing characters that made me feel like I was right there with them. This is packed with action , adventure, magic and so much more . Miranda is a young woman who wakes up one day feeling different and soon realizes she has magic powers but is scared and doesn’t want to cause any danger to her family and runs away. She finds herself in New Orleans and finds out there are others like her with powers and these guys set out to help her . Will she stay with her new friends or go back home to her family? I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. I’m looking forward to the next in this series.

This is the first book that I have read from this author and now I’m hooked. I love a good fantasy story but this author exceeded all my expectations. I was drawn to the main character right from the beginning. I could not put this book down so I read it all the way though. It only took me a few hours to devour this addictive story. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Miranda Stone thought she was a typical teenager and she had to worry about school and boys. She was very wrong. Miranda wakes up one morning and she feels very different. She has these powers that scare and she doesn’t want to put her family into danger so she runs away. Miranda finds herself in the best place for paranormal New Orleans. She finds out that there are more like her and she builds new friendships. Will Miranda find a new family to call her own or will she be on her own for good?

Miranda Stone is a typical teen from a conservative family. She suddenly develops magical powers and believes her family wouldn’t take it very well so she decides to run. She took what little money she had and ran to New Orleans. her plan was to become a singer and find a cheap motel to start her new life. She tries to be an opener for a drag club, thinking things will work out later.

Unfortunately, she soon realizes that won’t be the case. Women all over the world develop the same powers she does and end up going missing. She starts to fear for her life while still trying to maintain a normal life. She even meets the one – the girl of her dreams. She realizes that it’s probably a bad idea to try to have a relationship with everything going on, but the heart wants what it wants.

It’s a good read. This is the first in a two book series. I’m intrigued as to how the next book is going to go. I enjoyed the entire story. The characters were amazing and the plot was entertaining. The pace was a bit slow, but it was such a great story.

This author blew me away right away with this story. This is the first book I’ve ever read from the author and I couldn’t stop turning pages! I just had to know what would happen next. It does start off a bit slow but then it jumps right into a fantasy world. Miranda finds out that she has powers she is unable to handle and is trying her best to keep them hidden from others who will destroy her because she has them! Then she discovers that there are others like her and then her works shifts as they try to hide themselves from common people! Of course as a runaway, you know that Miranda will find herself getting into trouble at some point, but the best part is watching her life unfold worn every page! I’m looking forward to glow book two will fill in all the missing pieces. Amazing book!

This book was the first book to this new series. The book was a little slow paced but based on being the first book it’s a great installment. The plot was built to the point that I will be looking for the next book in here. It was amazingly written that you could almost feel like you were in the room with everyone. Miranda is a teenager that she all of a sudden had magical powers. She felt like her family wouldn’t like it or except the fact that she had these powers, so she ran away. Finding out that more girls just like her, Miranda starts to wonder what is going on and if she will be next. This was a great first book to the series and honestly can’t wait for the next one, I really want to know what was going to happen.

Thought Provoking, Enchanting characters, Strong Females, and the Discovery of Magic. What more could you want in a book?

This author never fails to bring out so many emotions out of me as I read. She has a way of tearing my heart apart one minute and making me laugh the next.

Miranda, Neeta, and Billie are a very unlikely trio, all with varied pasts. When these three come together, they finally find people they can trust and rely on. Miranda, being a 16 year old runaway, pretending to be 18 years old, finds herself in New Orleans after discovering she has magic powers. With the news showing many females are suddenly acquiring magic she is terrified to be caught. Women are disappearing and being reported to authorities. No one knows where they are going or what is happening. When a new character is introduced you are on the pins and needles wondering if something terrible is about to happen.

I was totally swept into the story as the characters and surroundings are so full of depth. When the author describes the rug in the motel room, my toes actually curled and I lifted them off the floor.

Wonderful book for a range of ages, teen to older adult. It is an interesting read, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. The beginning of the book is a little slow, but once it gets going you won’t want to put it down. The setting is in New Orleans, a place I absolutely love, and the author did an excellent job of making it such a magical place, like it is in reality. One of my favorite things about this book is how diverse the characters are. There is a little bit of everything, from a sheltered young teen to a prostitute, and I love that the author includes LGTBQ as well! This book is modern day Salem Witch Trials mixed with teenage runaway and an added flair of girl power. Miranda, a 16-year-old, starts noticing that she has magical powers, and decides to run away to New Orleans from her conservative family. Not only is she running away from her family, but she is terrified of what is happening across the United States to other women showing magical abilities, even young women who used their abilities against vicious male attackers. She has spectacular character growth from a naive teen to a power and confident young woman. I highly recommend this book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining and engaging YA novel, which has me hooked from start to finish. Sixteen year old Miranda Stone is looking forward to a nice, normal summer, but when her magical powers emerge, her summer is anything but normal. However, it’s not just Miranda who’s developing magical powers, it’s happening to women all around the world. Having felt she was in danger, Miranda runs away to New Orleans, where a job singing as the opener for a drag show, leads to new friendships and fun, until her friends start developing powers of their own.
As the world erupts, Miranda and the other supernaturally powerful women, must stay off the radar of the authorities, but this becomes increasingly difficult. When Miranda starts a romance with a young women this adds to her complications. I loved the main character, Miranda and enjoyed seeing how her character grew and developed throughout the story. The storyline kept me gripped and the descriptive narrative brought the world where magic was real, vividly to life. I felt immersed in the story and I liked the magical realism element of the novel. I look forward to continuing Miranda’s adventures with her in the next book in the series.
