“The Remarkable Journey of Charlie Price” by Jennifer Maschari

Grief, magic, and a secret passage. That sounds like an intriguing combination, doesn’t it? Here’s what my ten-year-old has to say about The Remarkable Journey of Charlie Price by Jennifer Maschari. He read it start to finish in one day!

The Remarkable Journey of Charlie Price is quite an interesting concept. Charlie’s mom had cancer and died. Charlie and his sister, Imogen, are grieving. But something isn’t right. Charlie is seeing less and less of Imogen, and when he does see her she is disgruntled and can’t remember anything. Charlie discovers Imogen is going through a secret passage in her room to a parallel universe where their mom is alive. It almost seems too good to be true. Is this just a lucky discovery or sinister magic at work? Read the book to find out!

This book really tugged at my heartstrings. I think this book would be good for a range of kids from seven to fourteen. A wide variety of kids would like it, especially those who enjoyed tear jerkers and magic.
