My grandson, Gavin, wanted his thoughts on Just Maagy posted. So, here you go, Ginny! Maagy starts out as a self-centered, spoiled kid. I have seen boys and other girls who are the same way in school and other books. Maagy’s story made me looked at myself and realize that I should really think more about others instead of just me. Whether the main character is a boy or a girl, I can still enjoy the story and learn something that makes me a better person. Maagy is thirteen years old and I will be thirteen in a few months. Being about same age, I see differences in the way we feel about what is happening to us. The story helped me realize that girl’s experience becoming a teenager a bit differently emotionally then we guys do. That was a big time eye-opener!

I have read all of Ginny's books. I have enjoyed all three books in this series and look forward to the fourth. I am over 50% thru this story and am intrigued by the change in the mood and tone of this book. The first two books seemed to be directed towards younger readers, but this book is a little darker with the introduction of the sword and sorcery environment. This is a good read for readers of all ages! I am a 67 year old man who relishes sword and sorcery and sci-fi fantasy, and this book fits in nicely.

Detailed Review

Just Maagy tells of a spoiled Crown Princess, one Melania Abigail Alice Grace, a spoiled thirteen-year-old who insists on always having her own way. She often gets it, but her aging father knows he’d better change her ways, or his kingdom will suffer.

So he takes her to the Summer Castle, hoping its caretakers, an elderly couple rumored to be enchanters, will teach Maagy about kindness and patience. Nobody can teach this willful child anything; but as she explores her new home, she uncovers mysteries and challenges that provide her step-by-step paths to becoming a better person.

It’s unusual to find a fairytale for middle readers – most are directed to younger audiences – but Just Maagy succeeds in providing an involving plot based not just on magic, but on a spoiled princess’s journey to becoming a leader and gaining maturity. This compelling story will reach from middle school into high school grade levels with its feisty protagonist and a host of problems surrounding her growth.

Just Maagy by Virginia Stringer is a story about 13 year old princess Princess Melania Abigail Alice Grace or Just Maagy.

Maagy is a spoiled young lady whose aging father King Henry has given her everything she has ever wanted. She knows no bounds and insists on everything and anything going her way. On the morning of her 13th birthday she throws a tantrum because there was no spomoni ice cream and that was one of the things she wanted right NOW. It didn’t matter that it was being made and would be ready for her birthday party that very day.

After witnessing too many outbursts, tantrums and blatant disrespect thrown at his staff he makes a hard decision to send the Princess away so that when he is gone she will be the perfect one to rule the kingdom.

Grandpa Kris and Grandma Polly are at Summer Castle and ready to teach her the things she will need to rule in the proper manner as her father has. She will learn how to be kind, resourceful, patience and above all else humility.

This is where the story gets really good! The Princess will meet all kinds of characters that will change the way she views the world and herself!

My kids and I read books together and this was really fun to read with them. The vocabulary was great and thankfully Virginia gives us a glossy with characters, terms used in the book and a fun Huggermugger lesson on words in the back. We referred to these pages often.

The next time I am in Brooklyn I am dying to take them to Spumoni Gardens so they can finally try Spumoni.

If you are looking for a great book for your daughters to read this Summer. This is one!

The Maagy Series is the quintessential fantasy book series that focuses on the maturation of young girls to adult women.

Princess Maagy begins as a spoiled, privileged brat who learns valuable lessons through wonderous adventures and the wisdom of those around her. Throughout each book, Maagy takes more steps toward her destiny and develops into an extraordinary young woman and warrior who will one day take on the mantle of queen. Following Maagy through these tumultuous stages offers perspective and guidance that young adults can relate to and enjoy. The Maagy Series provides an opportunity for readers to explore a new world, while also watching a character transform before their very eyes. This series captures the imagination and is perfect for readers of any age!
