Teen Book Review: The Apothecary

The Apothecary by Maile Meloy
Review by Anna, Sonoma Valley, 8th Grade

The Apothecary, by Maile Meloy, is a fascinating story set in the time after World War II.  The book is about Janie, a Los Angeles city girl that moves to London.  Janie thinks that her life is over when she moves, but discovers that she's about to start the best adventure of her life.  Her journey begins when she meets Benjamin, a peculiar boy at her school.  Together, they go on a quest to save the world, and Benjamin's father. 

I really liked this book.  I am definitely hoping that Maile Meloy has a sequel to this book.  I would recommend this book to anyone that wishes magic actually does exist, or anyone who wants to be a spy.
