Review: Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis

Goodreads: Twelve-year old Kat Stephenson may be the despair of her social-climbing Step-Mama, but she was born to be a magical Guardian and protector of Society - if she can ever find true acceptance in the secret Order that expelled her own mother. She's ready to turn the hidebound Order of the Guardians inside-out, whether the older members like it or not. And in a society where magic is the greatest scandal of all, Kat is determined to use all her powers to help her three older siblings - saintly Elissa, practicing-witch Angeline, and hopelessly foolish Charles - find their own true loves, even if she has to turn highwayman, battle wild magic, and confront real ghosts along the way!

Kritters Thoughts: The first few words I would use to describe this little gem of a book is the girlie version of Harry Potter. Mixed with magic, witchcraft and a girl that doesn't fit in, I felt as though I was reading a sister story to that epic series.

I absolutely fell in love with Kat - she was cute and lovable, but not too sweet. With her two older sisters and older brother, I think this book can be described as a magical twist of Harry Potter meets Cinderella. It was such a great combination of story and plotline mixed with great characters.

I would recommend this read to the younger audiences - maybe middle school or high school. Although the book was not geared for my age group, I found it to be a delightful read.
Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Pages: 304

  1. No hard feeling. But I am not with you when you said this is the girlie version of Harry Potter. I just cant see from any view.

    Yeah, Kat was a lovable character. I also loved her sisters.
