The Zigzag Effect

The Zigzag EffectThe Zigzag Effect by Lili Wilkinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a terrific mystery story, which includes moving interstate, Vietnamese food, rabbits, and a vanishing magician. There is also romance, mixed messages, deception and worry. It is a lot of fun, while being just a little bit scary as well.
Sage (photographer, state-mover and theatre assistant) is a delightful protagonist, and Herb (geddit?!) (magic effects creator) is a perfect foil. The mystery is convincing and well-constructed, and is satisfactorily resolved. There is a suitable amount of teenage romantic angst, and some clever and amusing dialogue between Sage and Herb. Recommended.
