Book Review Sunday: “Nikki Magee” by Peter Wendt @PeterWendtWhere


Peter is a trained photographer lamenting the slow demise of the darkroom, a hobbyist at multi-track digital recording, and a caffein junkie. Home is a 40′ sailboat, currently floating in coastal North Carolina.



Nikki is an orphan, age 11. She’s a musical prodigy, with a voice. Her story begins when she is thrown from an uncaring dark world into the morning light of her life, soon finding herself protected by a guardian in the form of a mob boss and his family.

Nikki Magee is a relatively fast paced novella suitable for adults and teens. As one reviewer says, “Think: Cinderella without the midnight deadline.” There’s a cast of characters involved in the journey she must take.

Nikki’s story is one of music. From Chopin to Joe Cocker, Nikki’s wish is to play, and play she does. She has a dream, and at age 15 she goes to her first rock concert where Fate is going to intervene, on a massive scale.


Exciting Series


This book was written in a much different style than what I’m used to but I enjoyed it immensely. Nikki was child who’d pretty much been abused and disposed of. No one had ever really cared about her or her well-being. When the story begins she’s been tossed to the side of the road and helped by a stranger. From there the neighborhood from which she was dropped has adopted her as one their own.

Believe it or not, being tossed out like garbage was the best thing that could’ve happened to her. I kept waiting for the next shoe to drop from those who’d tossed her out.

You can get your copy of Nikki McGee. Just click the title or the cover above.
