Introducing an extraordinary new voice - a magical debut that will make your skin tingle, your eyes glisten...and your heart sing.
Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place, a town where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away. Twelve-year-old Felicity knows all about things like that; her nomadic mother is cursed with a wandering heart.
But when she arrives in Midnight Gulch, Felicity thinks her luck's about to change. A "word collector", Felicity sees words everywhere - shining above strangers, tucked into church eaves, and tangled up her dog's floppy ears - but Midnight Gulch is the first place she's ever seen the word "home". And then there's Jonah, a mysterious, spiky-haired do-gooder who shimmers with words Felicity's never seen before, words that make Felicity's heart beat a little faster.
Felicity wants to stay in Midnight Gulch more than anything, 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.

A snicker of magic
This book was amazing! I was never board and every page made me on the edge of my seat! This is the best book ever! Can't wait to read another Natalie Lloyd book.
I was reading this for my summer reading, even though summer us over, and i was amazed on how exciting it became instead of reading the book itself. To be honest, the book was very boring, but once i listened to it on audible i couldnt put it down. I love this app 😍😍😍
I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure in the beginning, but the further I went, the more I liked it. I was dying to get to the duel and I wasn't disappointed! I recommend this book.
The most delightful story and narration I have had the pleasure to enjoy in years and years ... maybe EVER! A wonderful story for children and adults with a child's heart.
If you analyze Lloyd's writing you will find exemplary characteristics of every important writing trait. Her writing is filled with lush descriptions and beautiful sentence fluency. Readers of all ages Will enjoy the story and if anyone has someone they need to forget, the story will inspire them to do so. There is magic in all of us.
I knew just 15 minutes in that this would be a long drawn out book with limited interest but I stuck in there, hopeful that the book would get better. I was wrong. It did not. I wasted hours of my life that I will not get back. When it comes to a snicker of magic.....just say no.
