#BookReview | Elizabeth and Zenobia by Jessica Miller

Title: Elizabeth and Zenobia
By: Jessica Miller
Genre: Paranormal
Pages: 232
Release Date: August 29, 2016
Publisher: Text Publishing
Audience: Middle Grade

Summary from Goodreads: When Elizabeth and her unusual and fearless friend Zenobia arrive at Witheringe House, peculiar things begin to happen.

Especially in the forbidden East Wing.

The flowers and vines of the wallpaper sometimes seem to be alive.

A mirror has a surface like the water of a pond.

And an old book tells a different story after midnight.

Zenobia is thrilled by the strangeness, but Elizabeth is not so bold...

Until she makes a mysterious and terrifying discovery.




Review: That Zenobia, she is a snarky little thing. The story follows Elizabeth and her make believe friend Zenobia (Or is she) as they uncover a secret that Elizabeth's father has been keeping for a long time. Strange things happen when they move to Witheringe House. Can Elizabeth overcome her fears and be the savior that is needed?

I loved how Zenobia was always making trouble and Elizabeth would get blamed for it. You begin to wonder how many people believe that Z is there? Its an interesting concept. The story would be one that I could read with my 9 year old. I think he would love the mystery and excellent happy ending. One thing I would have liked to see more of would be the creepy factor, but because this is more of a middle grade book it was perfect the way it was. I'm just partial to bone chilling stories.

This was a great read, good for middle grade through adults. Four stars for Elizabeth and Zenobia. 

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
