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.

Loved that this was read with the voice of the child. It's a book of family, friendship, community and love artistically represented and fun to read. It's a great book for preteens, teens, adults ... a sweet and magical story for all ages.
This is such a charming book full of beautiful imagery and sweet moments. This was such a joy to listen to. The voice was great as was the story! 💗
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.
