I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked it a lot because it had to do with people who had powers. My favorite part of the story is when she found out about her powers. I like shows and movies that have powers. Another part that I like is when she gets adopted by Miss Honey because she doesn't have to see her mean old family again, and now she has a nice mom. My favorite character is Matilda. I like her the best because she was a nice and smart girl, and because she put up with her family even though they were mean to her. Matilda became braver in the book because she was afraid of the Trunchbull at the beginning, but she stood up to her at the end.
I recommend this book to kids and teenagers that have bad parents that don't treat them good. That is who I recommend this book to.
