Street Magic (The Circle Opens, Book 2)

Street Magic - Tamora Pierce 11/21/13 ** When I first read this quartet several years ago, I enjoyed it, but didn't think it was among Pierce's best work. On a second read and after reading books in the third series in this world, my appreciation has grown. As Pierce did so well in the Tortall world, the reader can see hints of our own world (and it's many political and social problems) in the world of Emelan and its neighbors.

In this book, 14 year old Briar Moss takes up the responsibilities of functioning as an adult, even while still growing up himself.
