Sunday Status: The Maloneys' Magical Weatherbox

Sunday Status is a look at my current read. I share one line from the page I'm currently reading and what I'm thinking about the book so far.

The Maloneys' Magical Weatherbox
by Nigel Quinlan
Publisher: Roaring Book Press, July 28, 2015

"Down in the far left corner of the elevator there was a shadow. With the fluorescent light on overhead and nothing at all to cast it, there should have been no shadow—and yet there was. Coiled like a snake ready to strike. And there was a tiny flash, like an ember flaring in the ashes of a dead fire (93)."

This book comes out at the end of July and it's filled magic and science.  In this mystical world, there are magical creatures, witches, and beasts, as well as a Weatherman who, along with other Weathermen, call in the Seasons.  They open the door and help to keep the weather.  Neil and Liz's father is the Weatherman and one day Neil will take over that job, if he can help his father keep the job.  An old "witch" (I'm not sure what else to call her) wants to kick him out of his job and take over and she's willing to use anything in her power--including Liz--to help her get it.

Although the beginning was full of a lot of background story and world building, the story picks up pretty well.  I hope to finish this tonight and get a review out there by the holiday weekend!

Can't believe it's already going to be the Fourth of July.  CANNOT believe it.
