Kid View: The Third Coin by J.A. Howard
I loved this book so much, it’s definitely at the top of my favorites list! At the beginning it is hard to tell how the story would play out but J.A. Howard was just really setting the plot up for the scenes that lie ahead. And she did a great job, it was so hard to put down! Her writing is so awesome and really hope she will write more middle grades novels!
The Third Coin is a fantasy novel about three kids, Bea, Nisha, and Indy, who search for a magical, lost coin. My favorite character is Bea because she is always trying to keep their team together and is almost always working for the greater good. The way the book is written has a very creative and interesting mix between real life and fiction, that really sucks you into the pages as you read. At the book’s heart it is truly about friendship because in order for them to find the coin they must work together and help each other through rough spots. I also like how J.A. Howard twists her own story with the legends of King Arthur to create more surprises for the rest book. There isn’t a sequel for this book but I think she has so many different ideas to work with she could easily create another book or three. 🙂 Overall I think this book was totally amazing and I hope she writes tons more books!
And she also signed it!
