Description

Despite reading this book for the first time, it still gave me strong nostalgia vibes of being back in an adventure book, as with all those of my childhood. The book celebrates African American culture, history, and heritage while exploring complex themes and interpersonal relationships in an approachable manner. Maar op andere momenten - de meeste momenten - klonk het heel modern en normaal Nederlands, zoals wij ook zouden spreken.

You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods. It sounds like a dream world, but I like how this book doesn't shy from the darker and ugly parts of Remarkable history either. Although there are plenty of magical elements the emphasis throughout the story is that you do not actually need the magic to fulfil your potential or achieve great things in your life.

There were a lot of great foundations in this book, and I think it just needed a bit of work to really bring out the aspects that would make it great. I would say her first middle-grade fantasy debut is a success on its own and I love how she puts her own flair towards it. I do have some basic knowledge about America, but honestly, there were a couple of times when I was just baffled by what was being said or mentioned.

I love the sense of representation in this book as pretty much all characters are people of colour, as well as the history behind the type of magic Remarkables/Manifestors can do and how a lot of it tied into African-American history, and also just worldwide Black history as well. There’s nothing (absolutely nothing) that I could critique about this book as it was just a delight from start to finish.The Manifestor Prophecy is a tantalizing first installment in what is sure to be a blockbuster series, and a remarkable achievement for a master author in a thrilling new arena. Packed with humor and bursting with heart and imagination, Nic's story will enchant readers of all ages!

Her debut novel, The Hate U Give, was acquired by Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins in a 13-house auction and will be published in spring 2017. This is one of those rare books that will instantly become the best friend you didn't know you needed. I just know that any child that sees themselves represented in the pages of this story is going to absolutely love it […] I could tell Angie Thomas had a lot of fun writing this book, you could really feel it in the pages and with every new magical mishap that happens to our group of friends. There were some really great fantastical elements woven into the narrative that made me even more curious about the world building and it was great to see a predominately Black cast at it's center. I enjoyed learning more about Black history/historical events, but I wish that she would have used the information in a way that built a stronger connection between it and this fantastical world.

The characters are mostly fun, but there is no way that a twelve-year-old can have so much world knowledge as that, or be so eloquent - their vocabulary is much too big. Angie Thomas is such a phenomenal talent, and this truly is fantasy at its very best - a magnificent, exhilarating adventure in a richly imagined world. I love that the adventures were written in a manner that made the story has its own colour and personality.

Angie Thomas did such a great job building this world and creating a magic system that is familiar and fresh!On her birthday, Nic is granted a hellhound as a gift and is supposed to attend a fun book signing until a series of events lead Nic's father to keeping her home. This is an absorbing, fast-paced fantasy adventure full of humour and heart, with plenty of action and inventive moments to keep readers racing through the pages. They welcome you in and offer you a safe place to go when you want to disappear from the world for a bit, and this is exactly what this book did. Ineens moet ze op zoek naar de verdwenen Msaidizi, al heeft ze geen idee wat ze zich daarbij moet voorstellen.
