On the evening of the Harmonic Convergence, five children are born in Hamilton. Although not related, they share a similar trait. All have magical features and don’t look like human babies. Thankfully, Melissa Link is on hand, ready with glamour charms that will help the children fit in with the rest of society.

But even though they appear normal, they are anything but, and the school dubs them the Misfits. They, however, prefer to be known as the Mythfits.

Some of the town’s children start to go missing, and suddenly Ms. Link vanishes, amidst disturbing circumstances. It’s up to the Mythfits, along with their new friend, Norma Lieber, to figure out what’s going on and try to find Ms. Link.

Although initially skeptical of Norma, these magical children finally come to accept her as one of their own, despite the fact she’s completely normal. Using their super-powers, they determine the force behind their mentor’s disappearance, and save her and themselves from harm.

Magic and friendship blend nicely as these kids are forced to work together, despite their squabbles. Even though the story is told at times through the eyes of the adults, kids will still enjoy the magic and intrigue surrounding this little town of Hamilton. The Mythfits is a fast-paced and fun read.
