This installment provides us with some deep Connie reflection as we quite literally dive into her mind. However, I didn't quite like Connie as much in this book. While I understand that this book is about learning to accept oneself and others, both good and bad, the writing was not as compelling as the previous book.There was, once again, quite a deal of self pity (aka this is like the dreaded 2nd book ...more

I enjoyed this sequel, although it's more of the same of her being outcast from the Society because she's different. There's a important lesson about telling the truth and it has a lot of other good messages.
First off let me say that Mr. Corridington
( however you spell his name) needs to seriously stop hating on Connie! He's been doing that from the start, trying to get her in trouble and expelled her from the society! He got what he deserved! HMPH!

I am partial to character development. This is the first time that we really get to know Connie. We discover, along with Connie, all of her st ...more

It was an okay book. I enjoyed the first two books of the series so I thought I'd read this one. I wasn't disappointed. We explored more of Connie's adventures... or more of lack of adventure. She's been banished from the society because their leader (view spoiler)[ Mr. Coddrington, that loser, he is (hide spoiler)] thought that she was summoning dangerous storms. Really, Connie was never fully conscious when she created those storms, but that didn't...more
