What Is The Book About?
Firstly.. What an incredible book this is. Just to warn you beforehand, but this is such a beautiful read and you may want to read it over and over again.
So.. Linus Baker works for the department in charge of Magical Youth. He travels around the country visiting orphanages to check that the children are safe and in good hands. He gets assigned a highly classified case where he has to visit an orphanage that homes six very dangerous magical children. Linus turns up at this orphanage to find their guardian Mr Parnassus, who would sacrifice everything to look after these children and to keep them safe. There are a lot of LGBTQ+ themes throughout this book along with equality, dealing with discrimination and more..
How I Felt:
This book was just so heartwarming to read. You really get involved with each character in the book, learning all about their magic and how they try to control it. You also get to go on discoveries of love, discrimination and so much more. There are so many amazing messages within this book, from same-sex relationships, to being accepted by all and learning that everybody is the same and should be treated equally also. There is so much love in this book, it is just such a heartwarming book that you will want to pick up time and time again! I listened to this on audiobook and it was outstanding. I did not want the book to end and would highly, highly recommend.
