From the Mist (Disney’s The Never Girls Book 4) by Kiki Thorpe –OPTIONAL

Thorpe, Kiki From the Mist (Disney’s The Never Girls Book 4) 128 pgs. RH/Disney, 2013. $5.36.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.
Kate, Gabby, Lainey, and Mia have all been to Never Land a few times now. But this time its foggy and none of the fairies know why. As they try to find out, Katie goes off on her own. She finds a horse and rides it. Turns out the Mist Horses might be dangerous, can the other girls and special water fairy named Silvermist, find her in time?
This is a very sweet series that invites girls into the mostly boys world of Never Land. I have students who just love this series. But I just don’t feel like the main characters come to life for me. Everything feels very generic, verging on sweet. If you need a bit of a wholesome escape for 2-3 grade readers, this might be a good series for your library.
