The Crooked Castle by Sarah Jean Horwitz - ESSENTIAL

The Crooked Castle (Carmer and Grit #2) by Sarah Jean Horwitz, 356 pgs, Algonquin Young Readers, $17.95 

Language: G (0 swears, 0 “F”); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG; 



After Carmer, a talented young mechanic, and Grit, a faerie princess, defeated the Wingsnatcher, they hopped on the Moto-Manse and left Skemantis to see the rest of the world. When a ballooner crashes outside their home, the pair is led to Rinka Tinka’s Roving Wonder Show where nothing is exactly what it seems. When a string of local airships crash, Carmer and Grit step up to find the dark secrets behind the high flying acts. 

I enjoyed this book. It was a really fun one to read and held the same magic as the first one. Violence is PG because there is some fighting and magic use, but nothing too bad.
