INTERMEDIATE FICTION
Meriano, Anna

A Sprinkle of Spirits

(2) 4-6 Love Sugar Magic series. In the second book set in and around the Logroño family's Amor y Azúcar Panaderia bakery, Leonora's friend Caroline tries her own hand at brujería. In so doing she bungles a spell to see her deceased mother, instead summoning spirits from el Otro Lado. A wide-ranging cast tries to send them back; the result is pure slapstick. Meriano smoothly incorporates universal pre-adolescent issues of friendship and family throughout the novel.
