It was a little bit open-ended for my taste, but not in a terrible cliffhanger way. It was either a less than fabulous last chapter or a fabulous way to leave the door open for another book set in this universe; who knows? Either way, the characters, dialogue, and style of MAGIC'S CHILD are all great, it's well worth reading, and I'm looking forward to reading more from Justine Larbalestier

I recall reading some . Hinton, but not much else. The "Magic or Madness" series by Justine Larbalestier is one of the best fantasy trilogies I've read; YA or not. All of the books are well-paced, exciting, and feature well-drawn, believable characters. The story focuses on 15-year-old Reason Cansino who discovers very suddenly that magic is real.

This paper explores the representation of magic and madness in Justine Larbalestier’s Magic or Madness trilogy (2005–2007). While, at times, the trilogy challenges the ability/disability binary schism, the narrative closure reaffirms dualistic constructions of reason/madness, ability/disability, reality/fantasy and masculine/feminine. Thus, rather than redressing social attitudes towards mental illness and critiquing normative constructions of disability and the other, Larbalestier’s trilogy reaffirms dualistic and normative constructions of mental illness.
It was released in 2006. When a golem pulls Reason into New York, she calls Danny Galeano, Jay-Tee's eighteen-year-old brother, for help. Danny allows Reason to stay with him while she tries to trace the golem, although her feelings for him grow until she eventually sleeps with him, despite Danny continually saying that it is not right
