    This review and many others can also be found at Musings of a Book Girl.Midsummer s Mayhem was one of the cutest books I ve ever read I ve started to really enjoy retellings the past few years, and this one was done so well A Midsummer Night s Dream isn t a play I m completely familiar with, but going into this novel I did know the basics of it Since this is a middle grade novel though, I really liked seeing Rajani LaRocca incorporate the play and give a brief synopsis of it in her story You can t make comparisons if you don t know the original story, so the fact that she did this is really going to help readers find the similarities between the two.Overall, this book was really just so much fun I read it in two sittings because when I would pick it up I wouldn t want to put it down The story was fresh and fun and I felt like the pacing was perfect At no point did I feel like things were dragging too slowly, instead everything had the appropriate amount of urgency behind it LaRocca s characters were also wonderful Each one was so full of life and personality and showed great development throughout the novel.The dynamic of the Mackson family was incredible The way Mimi interacted with her sisters and brother felt so authentic They would ...
