Wow! What an awesome and exciting tour this has been! Did you miss an interview or book review?
No worries! Below is a short recap of all the fun reviews, guest posts, and interviews (with links).
First up, an awesome book review to kickoff the tour from Cathrine at dolphin18cb! Not only that, but curious what inspired the story? What about the dream cast? Kimberly shares all in this interview with her!
If Meg Mitchell was a cartoon, I would be up at six am on a Saturday just to see what happens next.
Such a powerful story of resilience from Kimberly on Thorn & Vine! Very encouraging about friendship as well.
This character interview on Unicorn Quester is a little bit of a twist. You see, she’s the writer and author of this book: Kimberly McNeil. Pretty cool, right? See what her thoughts are on the Storyteller and one of her favorite memories from Scotland.
Want to learn a little more about Prim Castle in Meg Mitchell? What about the kinds of characters she’s fond of? Hop over to Lands Uncharted to learn all about it!
Another fantastic interview with Kimberly at SuperversiveSF! Find out a little more about her writing routine, the hardest part about being a writer, and more! (Plus, this writing advice was spot on.)
So find a purpose that’s bigger than you. And If you want to be a writer, write. You can’t just say “I’m a writer” and spend all day every day watching Netflix or YouTube. Writers have to write.
It’s always exciting when a book makes a reader have second thoughts about a genre again, and how awesome to know that Kimberly’s novel did just this! Stop by Nicole’s blog, Live Life Reading, and see her full review on this great story!
The story itself is quite interesting and intriguing and I like the alien-fantasy setting. I also like the way there was action in it, and there was mystery and it all fitted together really nicely and made quite a good book.
Many readers would echo It’s Storytime With Van Daniker! words in her book review of Meg Mitchell!
The story is unpredictable, engaging, and leaves you wondering different things throughout. I loved how the author didn’t tell us everything at once. She made us keep guessing.
This interview with Taneisha’s Book Blog & More is all about stories. How powerful does Kimberly think they are?
Really fun interview between Jebraun Clifford ~ dream.write.repeat. and Kimberly that includes food, GIFs, and character cast. What food does Kimberly not like? It might surprise you!
Wonder if you might regret anything reading Meg Mitchell? The Overactive Imagination mentions that it will only be staying up super late like she did.
I highly recommend this book. The plot is twisty and turny and the characters are all relatable and real. There’s some awesome fantasy/sci-fi going on, smashed together with an epic adventure in modern day San Francisco and Texas.
Lastly, a great recommendation from Taneisha’s Book Blog & More for young adult readers to check out this story!
This book is perfect for young adults and any reader who likes adventure with some mystery/fantasy and more.

About the Book
Stories never end. They just get bigger.
You only have to turn the page.
Meg Mitchell lives in a castle, but she’s no wilting princess. Raised in an alien world by adoptive parents, she spends her time fighting Centaurs, training as an Andai warrior, and chilling in her favorite willow tree.
But when Meg uncovers her birth father’s journal, she discovers a cousin she didn’t know existed. Meg and her little brother and sister travel through an interdimensional rip to San Francisco to search for their cousin, setting off a chain of events no one could have foreseen.
When her sister is kidnapped, Meg enlists the help of teenage detective Barb Taylor and her genius little brother Jim. Following clues dropped by a mysterious benefactor, they embark on a cross-country adventure to rescue her sister and find Meg’s cousin.
Family is everything to Meg, but not all is as it seems. In her quest to reunite her family, she may lose more than she ever imagined.
