A Snicker of MagicA Snicker of Magic (for ages 8-12) by Natalie Lloyd

Felicity has always been different. She can see words, but not just the kind written on paper or typed on a computer screen. Felicity can see the words of people around her. Their thoughts and whispers, feelings and dreams are alive to her. Some are glittery; some have feet like caterpillars, and one is even full of lightning bolts. She collects them in her little blue book that she always carries with her.

A Snicker of Magic book cover by Natalie LloydFelicity’s mother, Holly Pickles, has a wandering heart, and has never settled down long enough to call anywhere “home.” Midnight Gulch may be different, though.¬†Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away.

Now, for the first time, Felicity has a best friend, and she will do anything to convince her mom that they need to stay. But first, she’ll need to figure out how to bring back the magic, breaking the spell that’s been cast over the town . . . and her mother’s broken heart.

Will Felicity be able to call the magical Midnight Gulch home? Read Chapter 1 and see if you get hooked! What kind of magic you would have if you lived in Midnight Gulch? Share in the Comments section!
