Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Jumble Sale! Check out my review and let me know what you think.
Zadi is part zombie, part fairy with a little bit of robot, which makes her a misfit monster. She lives with other misfit monsters, with their quirky parts in their makeshift town. They survive by hunting at the nearby hunting grounds taking items discarded by humans and making them into something useful. Hunting is risky because they could be captured by humans. Zadi is an excellent hunter and maker, but now she’s finding it difficult.
Something unusual has happened. There have been no new deliveries to the hunting grounds. This means there are no new items which can be used to recycle into something useful, and they are beginning to worry and fight with each other.
Can Zadi come up with a plan which will help the misfit monsters and bring them together as a community?
Enter the world of the misfit monsters, their quirky lives, and be part of their fun and adventures.
The Jumble Sale is Middle Grade Fantasy at it’s best. A cast of unique characters, a fun and fast-paced plot, and a few things to learn along the way.
I love Zadi, our main character. She is strong, with a good head on her shoulders, and handy, but she admits she needs help from her friends. She isn’t perfect, who is? And I enjoyed that about her character. The rest of the cast was unique, and each person had their own personality, and their own set of circumstances.
I highly recommend The Jumble Sale to Middlw Grade fans and Fantasy fans. There’s a lot packed into this short book, but I never felt like it was rushed. Great read!
Lily Rose enjoys world building and creating characters for these unusual worlds. She enjoyed creating the misfit monsters world, and is looking forward to writing more of their adventures.
