A Snicker of Magic

Folklore, magic, and a little but of hope are some of the ingredients Felicity will need to prove to her nomadic mom, that Midnight Gulch is indeed home. If Felicity, who sees words everywhere she looks (words that express feelings, knowledge, and wonderings) can break the spell that looms over Midnight Gulch and heal the heart of her mom at the same time, a snicker of magic will be just what it takes to make everything just the way it really should be. A sweet little story with likable characters and interesting magical folklore sprinkled throughout. I think the book could have been written with about 30 less pages, but over all I think it is a quality book that readers in 5th-8th grade would enjoy.
