Heir to the Lamp is a fun story about what happens when a teenage girl learns she's a genie. I enjoyed a lot of things about the book, but I especially liked the adventure the main character goes on to protect her lamp and its secrets from the wicked Order of the Grimoire. I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys fantasy and adventure.

Filled with magic, curses, and mystery, Heir to the Lamp is a spellbinding journey about a young girl’s path to self-discovery. It’s unique, funny, and enthralling. But as great as the plotline was, it’s the characters are what make the story, particular Ginn, Rushmere, and Caleb. Though still in her pre-teens, Ginn’s not all about her, like I have seen in some other young YA main characters. Actually she was quite a spit-fire when it comes to looking out for her friends and family. And I found her though girl attitude engaging. Rushmere was especially cool, and though I thought his entrance was a little weak, I quickly grew to like him. As for Caleb, I had a hard time not liking him, even when I started having my doubts about his loyalties. But hey, I’m a sucker for a copper haired boy with turquoise eyes. I just wished there was more of him in the storyline. I felt his appearances were far and few between. The other best part of Heir to the Lamp was Ginn’s adoptive family. They are a unique blend of different personalities and characteristics, and together, they bring forth an unusual, refreshing dynamic to young adult literature. I enjoyed reading about them and would actually love to learn a little more about each of these family members. I hope there is more information in future books. As for the plotline, I found it really enjoyable. There were just a few scenes and events I wasn’t really sure why they were necessary to the plot. The first being her little brother stealing the lamp to bring to school. As entertaining as the event was, I almost felt like this was an unnecessary obstacle for Ginn to face. And her case of pink eye near the end, I just kind of didn’t see any true purpose in it. I almost felt it could have been replaced or just drop entirely from the scene. It didn’t hold any value. In all, I couldn’t put this novel down. I would definitely recommend Heir to the Lamp and I personally can’t wait to read the next book! Especially if there is more Rushmere and Caleb in it!

What a great book for teens! This book is creative and fun and I absolutely could not put it down until I knew what was going to happen to 'Gin'. Get it for you young teens and you will also find yourself reading it.
