Reviews

"A charming and imaginative tale brimming with magic, friendship, loss, and love. Readers will be wishing for a muse of their own."--J. C. Cervantes, New York Times bestselling author of The Storm Runner
"Chantel Acevedo's middle grade debut is a wonderful reminder that we are all worthy of magic. Every kid will want Callie Martinez-Silva to inspire the (s)hero within. ¡Bravo!"--Pablo Cartaya, critically acclaimed author of Each Tiny Spark
Praise for MUSE SQUAD: THE CASSANDRA CURSE: "This riveting, suspenseful book presents a unique blend of Greek mythology and Cuban culture.... Perfect for readers of mythology-based adventures, fantasy fans, and anyone who enjoys a suspenseful action book." --School Library Journal
"Acevedo successfully deploys a mixture of imagination and sincerity in this magical duology opener with a message of art's importance and awakening the hero within." --Publishers Weekly
"A refreshingly new adventure steeped in familiar mythology, where all people are worthy of magic. Muse Squad is a supernatural pick-me-up, a rare book that inspires laughter, tears, curiosity, and heroic purpose. Acevedo centers teamwork and community in a beautiful reimagining of what makes a hero."--Anna Meriano, author of the Love Sugar Magic series
"Fans of Rick Riordan's Greek mythology-inspired stories with modern kids will love this fresh, inclusive title.... [A] fun take on the ones who inspire, rather than just the heroes." --ALA Booklist
