" Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. " said.

" Excellent world-building, perfectly flawed characters, and a great mystery make Peasprout Chen a unique and compelling read. " said.

" 4.5! Utterly charming and imaginative, while also being profound and thought provoking. The world of Pearl is fantastically wrought and I love the important lessons Peasprout learns (I’m also going to start using “Ten thousand years of stomach gas” as an expression of frustration...) " said.

" I loved this book! It's unlike any MG I've ever read, and I am in awe of the intricate world building. The moment I opened it, I felt like I was there at Pearl Academy. Peasprout is a fantastic heroine - spunky, fierce, determined - and the way her relationship with her brother Cricket is portrayed is so heartfelt and realistic. Great twist at the end. I can't wait for the sequel!! " said.

" I absolutely loved this book! Great world-building and fun characters. I adore the relationship between Peasprout and her little brother, Cricket. The story moves so quickly that I didn't want it to end. The author masterfully inserts gemstones of wisdom throughout the book--not preachy but thought-provoking. Five stars! " said.

"In Henry Lien’s debut middle-grade novel, PEASPROUT CHEN: FUTURE LEGEND OF SKATE AND SWORD, we meet Peasprout Chen, a spunky martial-arts figure skater from the mythical county of Shin. When she and her painfully shy younger brother, Cricket, are sent to the Pearl Famous Academy of Skate and Sword to hone their skills—and, Peasprout hopes, for her to become a future legend in the deadly martial-arts form of wu liu—Peasprout encounters more difficulties than she expected, including a posse of mean girls and an accusation of vandalism. Can Peasprout rise above the fray and skate to the top? Find out and see! A delightful, gracefully written epic, filled with excitement and adventure. Sure to please readers of middle-grade fantasy, particularly Harry Potter fans!

" I have a lot of conflicting feelings about thisss @__@ " said.

" Wow. Just wow. This book was one of my biggest surprises this year. Full review to come, but let's just say that if you're looking for a fun MG adventure, look no further than this bizarre mashup that I can only describe as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Harry Potter... on ice. I read an advance copy of this book. " said.
