The Candy Shop War

By: Brandon Mull

Visiting a new candy shop after the first day of school, Nate, Trevor, Summer, and Pigeon
get much more than expected.  The shop owner, Mrs. White, begins to ask them to do tasks for her, and she rewards them with her special candy.  This candy is not only incredibly delicious, it is magic!  The four friends think this is wonderful until Mrs. White begins to ask them to break in to places and steal things.  As they consider backing out, they find that magic candy is a lot more then they had imagined!

Mrs. Senechal says:
This was a great start to my summer reading!  The story really drew me in, and, just like the main characters, I had trouble knowing who to trust.  The author includes many twists and turns in the plot which kept me wanting to read.  This is the first book in the series, so it will be fun to see what happens next.  The author has also created an app and card game to go along with the series.
