Review: This was such an exciting mystery and I really enjoyed getting to read it and see what Milly was going to do next and what potion would be done and how quickly things changed. 

Milly always admired the house across the street and then one day a new family moved in including Cora a girl her own age, while exploring the house together they found a hidden room with a journal, secret recipes and the ingredients for them, they took to experimenting together having fun until they discovered something, that someone else had used them and had dark plans. Milly on her own ends up having to solve the problems and save the children from being “Zombies”. 

This book was honestly a fun read, i loved the potions element and all the things they were playing around with to see what it would really do. The characters were all very well written and connected well to each other. I really liked that it was also a mystery that you didn’t know how it was all going to be solved and you were rooting for Milly to fix the whole thing and fast so no one else would get the “cure”. 

I recommend this book, it’s an exciting and fun read, written really well and will entice you into the story so quickly, you’ll want to solve it with Milly.
