Overall Score: 4 StarsThis middle grade story was truly magical filled with adventure, mystery and a world that was beautiful and unique. When Calum's cousin goes missing, he needs to figure out how to find him and helping Laurel will show him the way to the solution.
The Circle by Cindy Cipriano really opened my eyes to a world that was so beautiful and simple but yet was complex and united at the same time. It was hard for me to believe at times that this world was a product of imagination and was completely made up by the author. And the characters! I absolutely adored each one of them and they were very realistic. Every conversation was true and defined which never left me confused.
