    Kids don't always agree with what parents ideals are. Clara is stuck with a "woo" mother who has a beaded doorway, and has a great aunt who was a witch, and makes herbal remedies for people. Clara just wants a normal life, with normal kids, in a normal school. And she wants to be a jou...

    I thought the book was really cute and would suggest it for those 9-12 years old although it will be enjoyed by all age groups. The book flowed along and the characters were not 2-dimensional. Sometimes in life we don't get what we want, but we have to play the cards we're dealt. I wou...

    Me now loved this story and I know 5th/6th grade-Stephanie would have *really* loved this story. Clara is a practical girl that has to come to terms with her more bohemian mother/new lifestyle after they move to the colorful Kensington Market. She meets Maeve, who turns out to be a ...

    A Switch on the Family Cozy Usually, in my experience, when you have a warm and fuzzy family/neighborhood cozy it's powered by a big-hearted and optimistic kid heroine who thaws out the frosty adults around her. Very Pollyanna, (which, by the way, is a way better book than common me...

    Thank you so much to NetGalley and Puffin Canada for gracing me with a copy of this light and breezing book. This was exactly what I needed on a Saturday morning filled with freezing rain! This middle grade story stars Clara, a skeptic of the paranormal who is assigned the horoscope...

    A totally delightful read featuring gentle mother-daughter conflict, lots of middle school drama, a mystery, potential psychic ability, all set in Toronto's vibrant Kensington Market and told from Clara's slightly dry, pitch-perfect tween first person perspective. ...

    This is a cute little book with a cuter message at its heart. While the story picked up some pace only almost after half the book and the dialogues had rough edges, they are not huge complaints. I loved hanging out at Kingston Market with Clara and Gaby and their weird, kind friends. I...

    I got an ARC copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Clara Voyant was a book about Clara Costa, a girl who didn't believe in things like magic or "woo" her grandmother, Elaine, would say. Unlike her grandmother, her mother Gaby, believed and liked these ki...

    MY RATING: 4/5 STARS I received a copy from Penguin Random House Canada in exchange for a honest review. I don't typically read middle-grade novels. It usually has to do with something about the writing style that really ticks me off. Like it's either too simplistic or charac...

    Clara's passion for writing lands her as a "Newsies" in the school newspaper....but her assignments leave her longing to write a more 'hard-hitting investigative piece' if only given the opportunity! Trying to plead her case, Clara is given a new assignment...writing horoscopes.....not...

    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Clara moved to a new neighborhood recently and doesn?t really like it. The people here are too weird and it doesn?t help that all her mother is talk about herbs, ghosts and powers. What Clara wants to do is s...

    *POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD? BEWARE* Before the review, I just want to say that the cover is PHENOMENAL!! Clara Voyant was an exceptional novel. It?s one of those novels where once you get hooked; it?s hard to put down. You really get drawn into the story, especially with the ...

    I've been trying to think about what to say in this review for over a month now, and I'm still not sure. This was a cute middle grade contemporary with a bit of mystery and mysticism. Clara is at a new school and has moved into a new neighborhood. I enjoyed the little plot throughout, ...

    *I got a free copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review* Clara is a rational thinking girl who doesn't believe in anything magical or that doesn't have a logical explanation. But sadly for her it seems that can't escape those crazy ideas, n...

    Now I haven?t read a ?children?s? book in a very long time. That being said, I liked Rachelle Delaney?s ?Clara Voyant.? It was a light, easy read that made me smile. I often found myself reminiscing on my own elementary school experiences. And I loved the fact that it was...

    I forgot to write a review last year so here it is: I did like this book, I think that it can almost bring back memories from middle school. I would recommend this book for the ones that feel like reading something simple, and yet with a good plot. ...

    I loved this book! I absolutely believe in these sort of mystical things like clairvoyance, horoscopes, reading tea leaves, herbal thingies (not exactly sure what to call them), and all the other things mentioned in this book. I connected with all the characters, even the terror of a c...

    "A wise person once told me that people are in charge of their own destinies. You can't decide what will happen to you, but you can decide how you'll react." The book is based on Clara, a girl who doesn't believe in mystical powers & superstitions and calls all those things "woo...

    This was quite a fun read! I loved Clara, who moves away from home to Kensington Market with her mother Gaby after her grandmother Elaine decides to retire in Florida. Elaine is practical and reasonable and not captured by "woo." Gaby, on the other hand, is the opposite. She is a littl...
