The Magicians of Caprona – Diana Wynne Jones

Caprona, the Italian city of spellmakers, is in trouble. A mysterious evil enchanter has made the feud between the Montana family and their rivals, the Petrocchi family, worse then ever. Armies are poised to invade Caprona, and the Duke seems incapable of stopping the impending disaster. That leaves it up to Tonino Montana and Angelica Petrocchi, two of the youngest members of their respective families, to try to stop the evil enchanter and save their city. But the enemy they must bring down is powerful and cunning, especially for two children who have trouble making their spells work properly. To overcome the evil enchanter, the children must enlist the help of a special cat and find a way to get their feuding families to work together.

I really enjoy this Chrestomanci series.  They are fun, funny, and full of magic. Start with Charmed Life, but don’t miss out on the rest of these great books!  This one also reminded me a little of Romeo and Juliet.  J – Jessica, Teen Librarian
