Quick Summary of From Frights to Flaws. Twelve-year-old Alyssa McCarthy can no longer stand the toughness of her uncle and wants a better life. But one day she discovers not only the existence of magic, but also a villain hunting her down. The villain uses magic and magical technology to kidnap Alyssa to the Fiji Islands. As much as she wants to go home, she has to face some dangerous challenges first. Not only that, the villain himself must also be defeated. Can Alyssa succeed, even with the help of her mentors?
From Frights to Flaws is simply written. This book, written for middle school ages, is very simplistic--with short, straightforward sentences and characters who cut directly to the chase, so to speak. My younger daughter enjoyed the writing style more than my older daughter.
From Frights to Flaws serves up a lot of quick action--and not much realism. The author keeps the story moving with a lot of action and fast paced scene changes. While the storyline is a good one, there are so many times where events and activities are impossible to believe.
Would we recommend From Frights to Flaws? We think it's a fun, entertaining book for younger middle school aged children.
