A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
When Felicity Pickle is taken to her mother’s hometown, she finds herself hoping that this move will be different than all of the other times their family of three has packed up and wandered away. And Midnight Gulch, Tennessee seems to be just the kind of magical place that might make her wish possible.
But somehow I knew, before I even heard a single word that this story would matter to me.
A Snicker of Magic is the kind of story you savor as you read. The setting has an easygoing and nostalgic feel. The word-collecting heroine, Felicity, instantly won me over with her reverence for beautiful words, the love she showed for her family, and the deep longing she had to settle down and stay somewhere for good.
Only my mama could shine like that
when the rest of the world was so dark.
While A Snicker of Magic is a whimsical story with magic, mystery, and quirky characters, the unassuming honesty of Felicity about her hopes, fears, and insecurities were portrayed with a realness that made everything that happened in the story believable… even the impossible magical parts.
