Publisher's Summary

Fifteen-year-old Reason Cansino has learned the painful truth that she - like her mother, grandmother, and new friends Tom and Jay-Tee - must face a choice between using the magic that lives in her blood and dying young, or refusing to use the magic and losing her mind.

Now a new threat leaves Reason stranded alone in New York City, struggling to control a power she barely understands. But could the danger she faces also hold the key to saving her life?

Magic Lessons is a stunning follow-up to Larbalestier's debut novel, Magic or Madness, which earned multiple starred reviews and a spot on the Locus 2005 Recommended Reading List, along with being named a Best Book of the Year by School Library Journal and the Young Adult Round Table of the TLA.

What the Critics Say

"Larbalestier creates complex relationships among her characters [with] realistic flaws....Details about how Reason and her friends perceive and use magic add to the realism and immediacy of the story." (School Library Journal)

    "Ok series not great."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As an adult I enjoy reading teen fiction because it usually contains a lot less sex, violence and evil, for lack of a better word. Sorry if this will be a spoiler but a 15 year old having sex and getting pregnant with a guy she doesn't even really know who doesn't really even have feelings for her? Her mother was even younger when she got pregnant and her grandmother was very young also. I realize that this was woven into the story because they all die so young but I really would have liked to have read a review that let me know ahead of time because this is not what I would usually expect from teen fiction. So now you can make an informed choice whether or not to read this series.
