Saunders, Kate Magicalamity 320 pgs. Delacorte Books for Young Readers , 2012. $11.42. (Rating: Violence PG13, Language G, Sexual PG13)
Tom, an 11 year old, finds out that his parents are in danger –all because of a family secret he didn't know about. His dad is a fairy and is on the run, Tom’s mother missing. Relying on the lackadaisy help of his aging Fairy godmother’s, Tom learns about his own magical heritage and the world he never knew about.
Keep it at the above description and you have a really good read. But add a unhealthy excessive dose of sexual innuendo and an 11 year old sleeping with a loaded gun under his pillow and you have a book that I can’t recommend under any circumstance. Freud would have a field day with this author. Enough said.
