Publisher's Summary

Are magic and wishes worth all the trouble they bring?

Maeve Merritt knows all about magic. After all, she found Mermeros the djinni in a sardine tin! But not even magic can give her the freedom to do the daring things she wants to do in her life—things not allowed for girls in 1897. When Maeve and her friend Alice visit Cambridge University, though, she’s amazed to meet ambitious young women breaking down barriers in science, in education, and in sports.

But just when it seems like her dreams might one day come true, thieves looking to steal Mermeros put Maeve and her friends in danger. With the help of two charmed silver mirrors, Maeve can outwit almost any burglar, but she knows magic will continue to cause her trouble at every turn. What if it's time to give up her djinni and say good-bye to wishes for good?

Just ok

Nothing super fantastic to report about this book. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great. Filled my need for background noise most of the time.

Blue stockings

This is such a fun series, I could listen all day. I didn’t want the third book to end. Mauve is a quick and honest kid. She is such a delight and a pain in the bum at the same time.

Delightful

This is the third book of the series I have had the pleasure to losten to. I am often frustrated by the parts that are intended as suspense. I simply find it unnecessary to the story line. Nevertheless, I have loved the adventure of this entire series.

Entertaining stories

The three audio books were entertaining. The language was often annoying, however. The stories are set in England with an English heroine and narrated by an English-speaker but full of grammatical errors, strange turns of phrase and multiple Americanisms that occasionally became irritating. It concerns me that younger readers are learning English that is incorrect
