Fifteen year old Meghan is from the sixth century and is the sister of the famous Merlin. Meghan uses a wizard’s wand rather than a witch’s. This proves dangerous in her time. To protect Meghan, she is sent from ancient Avalon into the future to eleventh century Amoika. There she was supposed to meet up with Tredwal, a friend of her brother's and the boy who she loves. Somehow Meghan ends up in 21st century America. Meghan is very stunned by this new world and can't figure out how things work. She thinks the technology is a form of witchery. Professor Benton Kingsolver and his son Ryan are just as amazed by Meghan and want to help her. Meghan then tries to adapt to her new life in this strange world. She learns the ways of the 21st century and is sent to school, where she faces the many challenges of being an everyday teenager and fitting in.
Wizard by Paula Paul is an amazing story full of mischief and fun. Meghan’s viewpoint into the modern world is funny at times when she tries to understand things that are new to her and as she tries to use magic to control situations that don't turn out as they should. Dating current day boys also brings interest to the mix. I loved reading this story of a teen’s struggle to find herself as she gives up the past to begin a new future. I recomend this to all young adults! Paula Paul did an amazing job writing this book about bringing a girl from the past into the present to live..
