The Casting by Joyce Shor Johnson

In 4th Century Ireland, Robyn yearns to become a bronze caster, but family pressures and outside forces threaten to keep her from achieving her dream.

The Casting was a well-written story with a strong female protagonist that will definitely appeal to middle grade readers. My inner 12-year-old kind of fell in love with her. I wished that the secondary characters had had just a little more depth to them, but I don’t think it’s anything that the target audience for this book would really notice or be bothered by. I really loved the setting and the detail involved in creating this world, and I’m looking forward to recommending it to some of the tweens I know.

Many thanks to Pugalicious Press for the review copy.
