characters Imaginary Madison ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Drawn the head of her favorite and totally misunderstood cartoon villain Prince Neptune He's also come to life and is giving her terrible advice about how to make people like her When she rejects him and he goes on a rampage during a school pep rally Danielle and Madison have to set aside their differences to stop him. That wasvery bizarre RTCFull reviewI m not sure how to classify this novel I read a fair amount of middle grade graphic novels many of which have lots of fantastical elements but I ve never read one uite like this While it has an interesting premise a lonely middle school girl finds a magic notebook that makes her drawings literally come to life the execution left something to be desired Since I can t otherwise elaborate what my problems with the book were I ll have to give away plot elements so read further at your own riskIn a nutshell my problem with this book is that the plot is messy and that made it hard for me to get into Had the author stuck with the central conceit of Dany creating a friend for herself and then dealing with the conseuences I think it would have been a much much stronger story Instead she chose to throw in a subplot involving a disembodied head who looks like one of Dany s favorite animemanga characters and to my mind this drags the whole book downMy other big problem with Prince Neptune is that he s toxic but the book does not interrogate this as much as I wanted it to I think that s a big no for a book that s being targeted at middle grade readers and since the main character is a girl I think it s fair to say the target audience is also middle grade girls Occasionally characters will make a comment about Neptune being vile but Dany always insists he s misunderstood and this really got under my skin Girls are so socially conditioned to excuse boys actions boys will be boys after all that I hated the fact that the main character in this book was presenting such a toxic sludge of a male character as Neptune as someone desirable I also don t think the argument that he shows his true colors in the end is supportable since Dany only seems to get that he s evil when he starts destroying her school and hurting innocent people I wanted the fact that he says shocking and vile things to be enough to clue her in to the fact that this guy is not okay In 2018 I think all literature needs to do better when portraying toxic men like this and I think children s and YA lit especially needs to be careful how it handles these messagesI also was not a fan of Dany I don t need characters to be likable Even the use of that word makes me cringe because I hate the idea that there s a belief out there that readers are supposed to identify and sympathize with all characters when that s simply not the case However my problem with Dany is she is the hero of this book and things do end up turning out okay for her but she never experiences the kind of growth I would have liked to see in a character who ends up being redeemed She moans and complains a lot about how unfortunate she is and how no one likes her but never once do we even see her trying to reach out to other kids and than once other kids reach out to her in clearly friendly ways I found myself very confused about what Dany was complaining about and I was impatient with her self centeredness Had she arrived at a sense of self awareness by the end of the book I would have welcomed that but I never felt she didIn the end I didn t dislike this book I saw a glimmer of something there but the book simply took too many bizarre turns and the narrative wasn t nearly tight enough to redeem it I think this author has promise though and hopefully her future works will be cohesive Informal Works Talks and Teachings your own riskIn a nutshell my problem with this book is that the plot is messy and that made it hard for me to get into Had the author stuck with the

A story about Danielle in seventh grade a fairly typical struggling kid until she draws Prince Neptune in her late aunt s sketch book like a magic notebook a fairy typical trope yep and things pick up for her a bit He comes alive and becomes a talking flying head no not exactly nearly headless Nick from Harry Potter but close who is willing to act on her behalf It s a fairly manic story very busy too busy art maybe in the manga manner webcomic turned kickstarter project by the artist who did Henchman This feels disjointed jumpy A kind of buddy read with a couple middle schoolers who live in my house and who liked it all right it was pretty good which is to say a little better than I liked it maybe 25 for me which I round up for them Probably with this publisher it will be popular marketed well
