My life is books. Always, always books.

Juneberry Blue

by Candice Ransom

“Andie is one of eight residents left in Morning Glory, a once-bustling company town devastated by the closure of its special soda factory, which sent her father on the road to work. . . One spirit, a small white cat, leads her to the abandoned factory, and Andie realizes it might be the key to restoring the town and bringing her dad home. The bewitching book easily invokes the intimacy and eeriness of a small town in decline, and marvelous magic realism brings a hint of “Sleeping Beauty” to the proceedings. Dreamy descriptions, comforting nostalgia, and close relationships coalesce into a sweet, summary story perfect for any reading seeking a touch of mystery and magic.”
Booklist

“Fairy tale aficionados will delight in the parallels and references to well-known stories peppered throughout. Kids save the day in this story filled with mystery, magic, and small-town mythos.”
