The final book in the Millie Maven trilogy wraps up in the best possible way leaving readers with all the right feelings and completely satisfied with the story. A must read for middle graders and really anyone that wants a faith filled, action packed story.

Millie Maven has grown over the few weeks she has been at FIGS, the mysterious school for the gifted she has arrived at after living with her “Mother,” the aunt who raised her after her parents were in a car accident. Her mother never treated her well and Millie now must bring her mother back to FIGS in order to save the school and her new friends. Her hardest battle is in front of her and if she can’t find the truth and believe in herself.

Finishing this series was both sad and satisfying. Sad because it is over and satisfying because of the way it played out. I loved everything about this series. Being a Dekker fan for many years, I always enjoy the way Ted puts little pieces from other novels into new ones he writes tying them together. That was the case here with Millie being from Paradise and several other little tidbits sprinkled throughout, don’t want to spoil anything for anyone.

This series really is a great one for middle grade readers to dive into. So much adventure but with content you don’t have to worry about what your kids are reading. Many young adult books today are still written with questionable language and content that make it unsuitable for that age group in my opinion. Not the case with Millie Maven; parents can give these books to their children confident that what they find within the pages will be the right kind of material and not the immoral points that so easily find their way in nowadays. I highly recommend this series to all Dekker fans, young and old, especially new young readers ready to dive deep and enjoy reading a fantastic series.
