Aggie Boyle & the Lost Beauty is a work of fiction in the fantasy and adventure sub-genres and was penned by author David Fine. Written for the middle-grade reading age, this delightful and fascinating tale is packed with action, loveable characters, and bright ideas from the very first page. Our titular character is seventh-grader Aggie Boyle, who has been singled out from the crowd for her peculiar appearance. Aggie doesn’t yet understand her own strangeness, but as the events of the story unfold, Aggie goes on a transformative journey that leads her to her destiny as a strong and powerful witch. What follows is a tale of inner strength, new friends, and finding your purpose in life.
Author David Fine has crafted a truly magical adventure novel that young readers (and the young at heart) are sure to fall in love with. One of the things which impressed me the most was the development of the central hero Aggie, who is a young girl with plenty of challenges to overcome and important lessons to teach young readers concerning self-esteem and owning your strength. This powerful message is embedded into a highly descriptive fantasy world, and the author has clearly put great attention to detail into the magical elements, special objects, and colonial references to the olden times of witch towns and ancient evils. Overall, I would highly recommend Aggie Boyle & the Lost Beauty as a charming and immersive adventure novel with plenty of wonderful surprises along the way.
