Booklist - 03/01/2021 Kit and her two best friends, Josh and Alita, are trying to decide what to do on the first day of summer vacation. Kit wants to explore an old, overgrown cemetery, but Alita and Josh want to go to the library. Kit thinks that is a mind-numbingly boring idea, but she gives in. The library, however, changes Kit’s life: according to Faith, the librarian, Kit is a wizard, and it will be up to Faith to guide her into both wizardry and librarianship, skills that are inextricably linked. Kit is thrilled, especially when she starts learning spells, until a threat appears in the form of Hadrian Salt, a wealthy wannabe wizard. He wants to wake up the dragon sleeping under the library and drain her power. Faith, Kit, and her friends have to work together to stop him. Stowell stirs together her characters and her narrator with a cheery spoon, and her story is generously laced with humor. With inviting text and an engaging protagonist, this should have wide appeal. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
