Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
After months of living a normal life, thirteen-year-old Alyssa McCarthy faces magic again. Only this time, though, she is cursed with it, thanks to an old depressed skeleton named Errol. Alyssa’s time with her godfather, Alex, will never be the same again, as she can perform sorcery, but never control it.
From letting out enchantments at school to creating outdoor disasters, Alyssa is bound to face consequences. She can only get rid of her powers if she can boost her confidence levels and improve her bravery. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. She must measure those abilities with a special device called a skillometer. Will she be able to get rid of her unwanted wizardry?
Review: Who wouldn't be thrilled to find out they have magical powers? Well, Alyssa isn't that happy about it. It might have to do with how her powers are totally out of control, though. Blending magic with technology, Wizardry Goes Wild is an enchanting read for middle graders.
