Given To Me For An Honest Review Mabel the Lovelorn Dwarf (Ballard of Mabel Goldenaxe Book 1) by Sherry Peters is her first YA novel. It is a fantasy and it is really a fun one to read. This book is one that is a real page turner. You won't stop reading it until you are finished reading, It is about Mabel who is a dwarf. She doesn't quite fit in with others where she lives. She experiences a lot of joy but pain as well. Mabel lives in a world of social pressures, prejudice and expectations much like those in our world. When you get to the end of the book, you are going to say "What"? Cliffhanger ..... So like myself and others you'll have to wait for the next book to find out more about Mabel and her search to discover more about herself. I gave this book 5 stars but it deserves more. I look forward to more from Sherry Peters.
