One of my favorite middle-grade series of all time is Stephanie Burgis‘s Kat, Incorrigible trilogy, and the third book, Stolen Magic, is now out in paperback!

Book 3: Stolen Magic — Indiebound | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
I’m not trying to make you jealous, I swear, but I got to read every chapter of this trilogy as soon as Stephanie wrote it. I remember waking up in the morning and scanning my inbox, hoping to see an email from Steph with a little paperclip attachment symbol next to it. She swore the chapters were several thousand words long, but I would gulp them down instantly, as if they were mere paragraphs.
Here’s why I love the Kat, Incorrigible books: they’re fast-paced fun laced with magic and adventure, and every page is infused with heart. One of the ways they’ve personally touched me is with their incredible sense of sisterhood. I don’t have sisters myself, but reading these books, I get a glimpse of what it might be like — all the bickering and anger, but all the love and loyalty, too.
Book 3, Stolen Magic, is now out in paperback and soon the trilogy will be released in a boxed set. Buy them for every kid reader you know… but make sure to buy a copy for yourself, first!
