About The Book:

Title: THE EQUINOX TEST

Author: Liz Montague

Pub. Date: April 2, 2024

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Formats: Hardcover, eBook, Audiobook

Pages: 240

 

Three friends discover magic and mayhem around every corner of their school in this brand-new illustrated series from New Yorker cartoonist and NAACP Image Award nominee Liz Montague that's perfect for fans of Witchlings and The Wizards of Waverly Place.

Welcome to the Brooklyn School of Magic, where seeds of enchantment are planted and magic sprouts in every corner. And where each fall, fifth years must pass the Equinox Test if they want to move up to Middle Magic.


Rose is worried. She's never been the best student. And if she doesn't pass with flying colors, Principal Ivy says she may have to transfer to a boring, non-magical school. Amethyst knows she's got the skills to ace the test. But to really impress her mom, she's got her eye on the school's top prize. Lavender just wants to fit in. Even after a few years in the States, he still feels homesick. All. The. Time. Passing the test might just be his ticket back to the island.

But with best friend battles, a cheating scandal, and trouble brewing in the magical community, the Equinox Test may not even be the biggest challenge these Magic Bearers will face this year…

 

 

EXCLUSIVE: A Day in the Writing Life of Liz Montague

 

 6:45am/7:00am - Wake up, make bed, brush teeth, etc.


7:15am - Either morning yoga, a run, or a walk depending on how I’m feeling (or very simple stretching if I’m feeling none of the above)


7:30am - Get dressed (crucial), go in the backyard and get sunlight if I haven’t been outside yet (also crucial), possibly with a hot tea (I’m not a coffee person)


7:45am - Breakfast with Pat <3


8:15am - Go into office and set the vibe (aka: turn on music. I used to listen to morning Lofi on repeat, because anything with words would distract me, but over the summer I read Lord of the Rings for the first time and now I listen to Lord of the Rings Lofi and it just adds a bit of whimsy to my day that I really appreciate)


8:20am - Inevitably get distracted by social media :-/


8:45am - Rip myself away and focus, going over my schedule and to-do list that I made the day before


9am - 12pm - Heavy Lifting Work (anything that requires a lot of brain power; drafting, editing, art sketches, etc. I’m almost always working on more than one book at once so whenever I hit a wall I just switch to a different project)


12pm - Lunch, second dose of sunlight


1pm-2pm - Emails (usually with my editor, agent, publicist, etc)


2pm-5pm - Light Lifting Work or Heavy Lifting Work I didn’t finish earlier


5:30pm - Finish up and write tomorrow’s to-do list


6pm - Dinner with Pat <3


7pm - Yoga class


8pm - Watch TV/ possibly more emails/possibly more work if I’m on a deadline and running behind


11pm - Bed
