My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Synopsis:In Abby’s world, magic isn’t anything special: it’s a part of everyday life. So when Abby learns that she has zero magical abilities, she’s branded an “Ord”—ordinary, bad luck, and quite possibly a danger to society.
The outlook for kids like Abby isn’t bright. Many are cast out by their families, while others are sold to treasure hunters (ordinary kids are impervious to spells and enchantments). Luckily for Abby, her family enrolls her in a school that teaches ordinary kids how to get around in a magical world. But with treasure-hunting kidnappers and carnivorous goblins lurking around every corner, Abby’s biggest problem may not be learning how to be ordinary—it’s whether or not she’s going to survive the school year!
I really enjoyed this story. It was a very interesting concept where people like us are not the norm and are feared. The king doesn't fear the Ords (ordinary non-magic people) and has a school created to teach them how to survive in the world they live in. This would make a really good series and I hope the author considers it.
