Publisher's Summary

Not special. Not chosen. But she's got magical shoes. 

Fourteen-year old Karina doesn’t know what she wants, but knows what she’s found - fascinating silver shoes. Fascinating, dangerous, and potentially evil. On the upside, they do bring cool visitors. When a princess invites her to go to Whyland and save her kingdom, of course she accepts. There’s that little “let’s destroy the shoes” detail she’s not crazy about, but hey, free trip, alternate world. 

But Whyland is nothing like she expected. Karina finds herself stuck in a kingdom she doesn’t understand, with no clue on who to trust. Before saving anyone, she’d better save herself - if she figures out how. 

To make matters worse, as much as the princess is fierce, determined, and brave, she'll jeopardize everything just to reconnect with her boyfriend, almost boyfriend, or whatever. And that might just be their doom. 

Step into Magic is a fun YA portal fantasy adventure. If you like books with strong heroines, friendships between girls, subtle romance, and some mystery, you've found your book. 

This is narrated in close third person with very snappy/sarcastic character voices.

Step into Magic

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not a teen girl so my review is based on what I think it should be for someone that this was written for. That said, while simple in plot, the book was actually enjoyable even though I might not read it again, just because... well, I'm not the target audience. But for who it's written to, I think it's great.

Good story for preteen girls

I was given a copy of this audiobook free for the purpose of review. I enjoyed the story and the narrator did a good job. It held my attention but something about the speed of the narration/story felt off in spots. I would recommend it for girls 11-15 but it is also enjoyable for older people who like young adult stories.
