Marabel has grown up in the shadow of her twin brother, Marco. Marco....The Chosen One....the one the prophesies all say the kingdom has been waiting 1000 years for. It's a bit hard to stand out in the crowd when your twin is destined to be the answer to everything. Most days nobody in Magikos even notices her. That makes it much easier to sneak in fencing lessons in the old tower and do other unladylike, fun things. But, one day adventure finally finds Marabel.....and her life will never be the same!

This is such a magical, wonderful story! Marabel doubts herself at first but discovers friendship, courage, and a dash of wisdom on her adventurous journey. She learns that oftentimes people misjudge those who are different from themselves. She also learns about negotiation, teamwork and the true value of friendship and trust. Awesome middle grade book! Ogres, dragons, fairies, wizards, gnomes.....it has a little bit of everything, plus a lot of humor. Everything is middle grade age appropriate. There is some allegory to current social and political issues, but nothing too over the top. Just a nice lesson in not judging others by looks or culture, and that fighting is not always the correct answer to a problem. True advice.

I don't usually comment on other reviews I have read, but I'm going to this time. This book was written for children. The book is intended for a middle grade audience. Many reviews for this book are from adults complaining about the humor, character development, lack of hard hitting emotion, etc I'm going to say this again: THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN FOR CHILDREN. This is not an adult book....or even a YA book. It is a fantasy story with a nice moral lesson for CHILDREN, and should be reviewed as such. I don't have a problem with adults, reviewers or anyone reading children's literature -- I love reading children's books myself and I'm a grandparent! But -- always keep in mind that the book is not written for adults, 20-somethings, or anyone older than 14 in mind. It's a children's story -- read it, enjoy it and review it for that audience. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but don't review a children's story like it is an adult or YA story. **Off my soapbox now**

I loved this book! I'm going to purchase a copy for my granddaughter to enjoy. It's an often humorous fantasy romp through a magical land....with a dragon, WizFi, a talking unicorn and lots more....and a nice moral lesson weaved in with it all.

**I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy of this book from Little Brown Books via NetGalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.** ( )

This book was a lot of fun, except for the anachronistic references to technology, which were just annoying and took me out of the story. It had a lot of great feminist messages and one could certainly read it as a critique of the current political context. ( )

Marabel's twin is the "chosen one" however he is the one that saves himself and the kingdom of Magickdome, that would be Marabel. She who is invisible everyone when her brother is around.

Marabel and the Book of Fate is a treat for young girls who want to read about strength and the power to save others while learning more about themselves while participating in an imaginative adventure. The story reinforces the message that a girl, no matter how invisible, can change the world. I recommend this book for any girl or boy that loves adventure loves fantasy and wants to start on the journey to help Marabel rescue her Twin Brother, Marco.

Author Tracy Barrett creates strong characters, colorful, vivid storytelling and an outcome that I just didn't see. Illustrator Sara Ganassi continues on with the vivid storytelling through the pictures. Which are fresh, youthful and stunning.
I rate this book as 4 stars. The only thing I didn't like is that I can't read more about Marabel, her family, and her best friend, Elle.

Won't you join me for a ride to Magickdom? ( )

Marabel and the Book of Fate by Tracy Barrett is a story of a young girl, Marabel, on a mission to save her twin brother, Marco. With the help of friends, Marabel soon finds it's harder than she first thought.

This is a wonderful and delightful story of a young girl who's trying to find her brother while finding herself. Tracy's has a whimsical imagination and a knack for storytelling. The characters were believable, and I enjoyed getting to know Marabel. This was such a fun book to read.

Received a copy via NetGalley, and all opinions are my own. ( )
