OVERALL RATING 9/10

Deals with real-life struggles, diverse and interesting characters

I LOVED this book. A Snicker of Magic is a perfect example of how fantasy can be used to bring real-life issues to light. This book is fun, heartfelt, and feels so real (even though there is a snicker of magic involved 😏). The story has a cast of well-meaning and diverse characters who keep you interested through each page. I loved every second of it!
