Something stopped Nita's hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But his one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.

I don't belive this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in
her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious - and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn't . . . ?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slow This book I think had a really good story to it but the whole entire book went very slowly, which made it boring at times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan, and am so impatient waiting for book five to come out. I got this book from Jamie(father), for my birthday(or christmas) and thought i'd read it. i could not put it down. i am not quite finished yet, and am on the edge of my seat, wondering what is going to happen. I have a bad habbit of looking in the back of books to find out what the ending is. Must...fight...impulses....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep Wizardry?? When you see the title of this book, you think to yourself, so what? A book about wizards. But when you actually start flipping the pages, you learn of a new land. You see the whales, and the dolphin, and your friend Kit, swimming as a whale beside you. Wait a second, why is your friend a whale? And hey, why are you a whale? Well.... read this book and learn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great book! This book is one of the best books I have ever read!! It has everything in it: adventure, what's-gonna-happen-next (foreshadowing, and that, okay, but that sounds too schoolish), great characters, good setting, ect. What I really liked was that the characters all pretty much stayed to their character, because in some books they change to a new personality completely. I know they're supposed to go through some sort of change at the climax, but they aren't supposed to be someone else. I especially liked Dairine. I dunno why, I guess she's just so much like me, annoying her big sis and all:). Anyway, this book was great, but the only thing was, they made a little too much of a big deal out of things. Sorry, but it's true. But, this book still gets four stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up!!!!

Read from the Book

Summer Night's SongThere were no streetlights there, and the stars she loved were bright. After a while she stood up in the shoulder-high water, watching the sky. Back up on the beach, Ponch was barking, excited and noisy. He can't have found Kit that fast, Nita thought. Probably something distracted him. A crab, maybe. A dead fish. A shark . . .Something pushed her in the back, hard. Nita gasped and whipped around in the water, thinking, This is it, there are too sharks here and I'm dead! The sight of the slick-skinned shape in the water stopped her breath-until she realized what she was looking at. A slender body, ten feet long; a blowhole and an amused eye that looked at her sidelong; and a long bleak face that wore a permanent smile. She reached out a hesitant hand, and under her touch the dolphin turned lazily, rolling sideways, brushing her with skin like warm, moonlit satin.She was immensely relieved. "Dai'stiho," she said, greeting the swimmer in the Tongue that wizards use, the language that she'd learned from her manual and that all creatures understand. She expected no more answer than a fizz or squeak as the dolphin returned the greeting and went about its business.But the dolphin rolled back toward her and looked at her in what seemed to be shock. "A wizard! " it said in an urgent whistle. Nita had no time to answer; the dolphin dived and its tail slapped the surface, spraying her. By the time Nita rubbed the salt sting out of her eyes, there was nothing near her but the usual roaring breakers.Copyright © 1985 by Diane DuaneAll rights reserved.
