    "This is an intense thriller with an unreliable narrator, so the reader must always be alert. But the reader who keeps up will enter a loopy yet engaging story populated with characters we never arrive at a settled judgement about. The mood at the end isn't exactly uplifting, which some might find upsetting. "

    "I don't know about then (when the book was first released in 1984) but now this is even more of a recommended read for teen girls. It will put things into perspective for them, teach them lessons that are not so indulged in being learned today, and do some actual good. It's the typical story of a self conscious teenage girl who's in love, but in a time that is becoming increasingly different than the one we live in. Definitely worth the time travel."

    "I have a problem. If there is a secret society or group who keep their business very private, I become obsessed with it. I have a friend whose boyfriend is a Mason, and I am dying to know what goes on in those highly secretive meetings (but he won't tell!). I am fascinated by Voodoo, Hoodoo, Obeah, and anything from the Louisiana Cajun culture- its so cool and creepy at the same time! Bohemian Grove? I would totally break into that place if I had a chance. And the strange Southern Gothic nature of Savannah has always made me wish I could go down there and not automatically be an "outsider" (aka be let in on all the bizarre stuff that goes on). So naturally, The Magnolia League by Katie Crouch was right up my alley! Who wouldn't love a story about debutantes dabbling in hoodoo, right?!"

The modern aspects that get drawn in to the past are key to showing the parallels in current politics that can lead to deeper conversations."

It is an engaging story that I couldn’t stop reading, and I ended up finishing it in a single day. I enjoyed Lois Lowry’s writing style. This would also make a great book club read, as the themes of government control and enforced conformity make for excellent discussion topics. This book is actually the first in a series, so make sure you have plenty of time to read before starting it. If you’re like me, you’ll likely want to plow through the whole series once you get started! "
