Saving Mim: Charlie Kadabra Last of the Magicians by Nan McAdam

Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
Source:  I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Charlie Kadabra was abandoned as a baby. He is bullied at school and just can't seem to get a break, until the day his science teacher comes at him with a knife. Suddenly, he learns that things aren't what they seem. He is talked to by a white rabbit, he goes through a shiny curtain and ends up in another dimension. The girl who was always nice to him at school now has pointy ears and multicolored ears. Charlie learns he comes from a long line of magicians. He is Mim's last hope. If Dr. Pi has his way he will destroy Mim. 

This is the type of book I think my sixth graders will love. They will be able to relate to Charlie in so many ways. In this book they will take a journey with Charlie through the halls of school into a fantasy world. They will find a hero they ca root for.  I am definitely looking forward to the second book in this series.
