Book Review: The Candy Shop War

The Candy Shop War

by Brandon Mull

This is a great book for pre-teens and early teens.  It’s an engaging story about a group of kids who find themselves doing increasingly more dangerous and criminally mischievous “missions” for the lady who runs the new candy shop in order to earn magical candy.  Of course, the kids eventually decide that what they are doing is wrong and try to back out of the deal only to find that things aren’t quite so easy.  That’s when the cavalry shows up to help save the day.

Like I said, it’s a great book for kids.  I enjoyed it, but most of the “twists” were predictable.  The story keeps moving, though, and has enough kid-friendly humor to keep the story mostly lighthearted.
