    In this lively middle-grade fantasy, Ebony Charmed thinks she is defective, and that all the other kids at her special middle school for mages have great powers but her. Yet she is able to speak by sign language to some spirits in the local graveyard, and weird things keep happening to her. She thinks she’s at fault, especially as her parents have separated. The only person who listens to her is her best bud Fleishman, but he doesn’t believe in magic.

Yet she is able to speak by sign language to some spirits in the local graveyard, and weird things keep happening to her. She thinks she’s at fault, especially as her parents have separated. The only person who listens to her is her best bud Fleishman, but he doesn’t believe in magic. Until magic sweeps them both into a succession of scary situations. The first half had a lot of promise, but was frustrating because the adults in Ebony’s life wouldn’t tell her what was going on for her own good, meanwhile she never did what she was told, so she kept running into more and more danger. The magical forces around her wouldn’t answer her questions either, just repeated that she would know what to do when the time came. This made for frustrating reading, and it didn’t help that the book was rife with spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, or that there was a lot of bigotry about fat people in the handling of the Headmistress, called Bat-Face by the kids. In spite of all the language errors, the second half picked up in pacing, becoming one long action sequence. It didn’t always make sense, but it was full of scary figures and imaginative magic as Ebony meets famous figures from Norse mythology. Altogether a fun read for kids; I suspect that middle-grade readers would go right along with Ebony being constantly told to behave, and to wait, and she’d understand later, and the adults making little sense. Middle grade life can sometimes seem like that in the real world. The book comes to a partial resolution, leaving plenty of threads dangling for further adventures. Copy courtesy of NetGalley

    Magical MG, great for fans of Harry Potter and The School for Good and Evil. While reading, I kept thinking about how much imagination and research of Norse mythology went into this. Everything was so vividly described. Enjoyed!

    Adventure, mystery, and mythology work together to make this middle grade novel an exciting read. Ebony Charmed hasn’t discovered her talents yet. Things start to go askew but when she’s given a stick for a school project the mayhem escalates. Then she loses it just as she realizes its importance. With support from her best friend, Fleishman, and a new friend, Lance, Ebony is able to discover not only her gifts, but find the all important stick and save a world or two.

Recommended for readers who like a fast paced adventure, mythology, or magic.

    This book is a great mix of creepy, clever, and mystery. I like Ebony for her attitude that makes her endearing and also seems to keep getting her in trouble. And Fleishman is her patient, level-headed friend. He was my favorite character, I think. What I liked amidst all the supernatural activity is that Ebony and Fleishman felt like typical kids.

She is constantly at odds with her mother and resents her for the way she treats her. Yet, yearns for her mother to stop being so cold. Her feelings of inadequacy and wanting to fit in is a sentiment that is felt by any middle schooler and makes her very relatable.

She is constantly at odds with her mother and resents her for the way she treats her. Yet, yearns for her mother to stop being so cold. Her feelings of inadequacy and wanting to fit in is a sentiment that is felt by any middle schooler and makes her very relatable. Plus, you can’t beat a story with secret passages, magic, elves, Norse mythology, a skeleton woman, and a lizard. And what they all have in common unfolds in ways a reader would not guess. But will she find out what secrets her parents were keeping? If she battles the Norse beasts will she see her father again? Her friendship with Fleishman was so endearing. Not only was he her GTG, he was not afraid to tell her that she must accept what her powers were and her role in life. During one of the battles, her father tells her that she has all she needs inside her. His reassurance that she had done so well up to that point and Fleishman’s faith in her, gave her the strength she needed to do what seemed to be impossible. I loved how after all she’s been through and finding out her powers, she still upset at the idea of her mom working at her school! I look forward to seeing the next Motley Mulisha quest! The Terms of Enrollment document at the beginning was a hoot! Oh, by the way, I’m a sensory :) Some of my favorite lines were: “Conjuring spells or energy to get rid of a sibling is strictly prohibited.” “Shy a few etchings on a tombstone.” “Ebony had hoped being in junior high would make a difference…actions and attitude didn’t matter either. People would judge the way they wanted to.” “Growth comes through acceptance of one’s self and station giving the ability to see into the biggest picture...concentrate on what you are now.” “New intensity sparked the atmosphere and a rainbow of psychedelic heat siphoned all moisture.” “Conversations with her aunts always felt like being on a corkscrew roller coaster after she’d eaten a half gallon of butter-pecan ice cream with butterscotch sauce.” “Crystal sheen speckled the air.” “Belief is a strange emotion and contains immense power and energy.” “….and his eyes blazed red – velour windows of disaster.” “Look beyond the extraordinary and you will see most value in the simplest of things.”

    Any book that opens in a dark and creepy cemetery with hints of paranormal goings on is a winner from the get-go for me.

The story cleverly blends a contemporary setting with ancient Norse mythology, as it follows the adventure of Ebony, a misfit in the school because she doesn’t appear to have any special powers… at least no special powers she can control. She’s bullied by other students, is a disappointment to her teachers, and is at odds with her parents who are separated because of her. Her best girlfriends are three ghosts who communicate with her through sign language. And that’s just the set up. This is a wonderful fantasy adventure written for middle-grade kids—but I think older kids (and adults like me!!!) will enjoy it too. Nicely done.

    I'd hoped I would like this book since there was Norse mythology in it but... Nope, not at all. All the time reading it I tried getting into the story but I just couldn't. I didn't care about the characters, it felt really like a typical story you've read again and again. There wasn't any kind of surprise or twist and I wish I could have liked this book because it really seemed interesting but I was bored the entire book.

    Do you enjoy visiting new worlds? Do you like to meet creatures and people that you might see in a spooky movie? Would you like to attend a school where the students all have special abilities that go way beyond being a scientific genius (though they could be that too), or a whiz at math? “Yes,” you say. Then you’ve come to the right place. First of all, one look at the book cover will arouse your curiosity. What kind of hand is that?

Would you like to attend a school where the students all have special abilities that go way beyond being a scientific genius (though they could be that too), or a whiz at math? “Yes,” you say. Then you’ve come to the right place. First of all, one look at the book cover will arouse your curiosity. What kind of hand is that? And the birds in the background hint at something sinister going on, at least to me they do. In MOTLEY EDUCATION, Author S. A. Larsen’s latest novel for middle-grade readers, we start our journey three months before entering Motley Junior High, a school for psychically and celestially gifted students. A boy and his friends are playing in a cemetery where they’ve played before, but this time, something unusual happens. No, I’m not saying what. You’ll want to discover that for yourself. From there, the reader follows sixth-grader Ebony Charmed, a spirit tracker, and her best friend and go-to-guy, Fleishman, who can manipulate matter, through one adventure after another. From ghosts to doors that are there but aren’t, to students vanishing, and creatures you could never imagine, her bravery is tested time and again. And if that’s not enough trouble for a girl, Ebony’s dad has left home, and she wants him back again. She also learns surprising things about her parents. Is anyone really who they claim to be? S. A. Larsen has created interesting characters, some good, some bad, which is as it should be, that are typical kids, except for their special powers. The author describes the scenes so vividly, it was almost like I was there. MOTLEY EDUCATION would make a nice addition to school classrooms and libraries, (where students might wish they attended such a school as Motley Jr. High), as well as public libraries and your own. Recommended. The book is now out for your enjoyment.

The pages kept turning as I wanted to see what was next for our heroine. I love all the attention Norse mythology is getting lately and hope to continue to learn more about it!

    Just try to imagine a School for the Psychically and Celestially Gifted; that’s the realm of Motley Middle School. If you think that might be saying a lot in one description, you are correct. But wait until you meet Ebony. She’s not a great student, dresses weirdly, has only one true “live” friend (he has his own hangups), and several dead ones at the nearby cemetery. To say her family and her home are a bit strange is definitely saying too little.

    Fun ride of a story! These are my favorites; ones with lots of supernatural critters, magic, and kids. I loved the the first two Harry Potter books, Inkheart, Magick, Miss Peregrine, and so many others! It's frustrating being a kid, especially staring at 10 or 11 for most of us. Everything is hurry up and wait! Grown ups are sooo frustrating! I am sure this book will have found it's audience pretty quickly in the 10-13 year old age group by now! It's that good!

    For those fans of Norse mythology, this is a great read. Those not familiar with Norse mythology will still enjoy this book. The story moves along quickly and the next thing you know it’s the end of the book. It seemed a little open-ended, so I'm hoping there are more books to follow.

    Looking for a creepy read with lots of cool world building? MOTLEY EDUCATION is the book for you! Ebony Charmed is working on her spirit tracking abilities, trying to survive 6th grade, and dealing with problems at home. Saving the entire spirit world should be NDB on top of all that, right? A great middle grade full of adventure. Fingers crossed for more!

I loved reading about the world that S.A Larson created, along with the quirky, interesting characters. Not sure if this will be a series moving forward, but I would look forward to more of these adventures. Perfect for children in the middle grades...

The writing, from beginning to end, flows very well, chock-full of beautiful descriptions and vivid imagery. It reads like a running stream. This could not have been better. I just hope some of the bigger words aren't too much for younger readers with a limited vocabulary. I think kids will absolutely adore this tale. Not only is it fun and the prose fun to read, but it also contains awesome lessons about courage and life and wisdom (without being preachy; this novel is not preachy at all!) that I think will resonate with young readers--all readers, actually. So, if you like Harry Potter, and want a new version of Harry, look nowhere else. This is for you.
