For Marvelous Middle Grade Monday, I’ve got a fantasy, Spark (Clarion Books, 2019) by Sarah Beth Durst, to recommend.
Quiet twelve-year-old Mina is anxiously waiting for her egg to hatch and find out which storm beast she’ll have. Will it be a rain, wind, or sun beast? Everyone knows she doesn’t have the temperament for a lightening beast. But when Pixit hatches everyone is surprised at the creature Mina is bonded with. Maybe she’s not meant to be a guardian. When Mina learns that their wonderful life in Alorria is hurting others, she has to decide whether to tell the truth or not.
I love that this novel shows quiet girls can be heroes too!

Intriguing plot and I love the cover. Thanks for featuring. I’ve added it to my TBR list.
I should read more MG fantasy. In the right storyteller’s hands, it’s magic. Thank you for staying on top of so many good books.
I love mg fantasy. I can hardly wait to share the one I’m reading now. I hope the ending is as strong as the writing so far.
What a great cover — that alone will speak to readers. I also like the plot. Will check out, because I do like fantasy.
This book sounds like a great read! Thanks so much for the review!
