A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd - 311 pages

Felicity's family has never settled anywhere for very long.  Just as Felicity and her little sister are getting used to a place, her mother decides to move on.  Then they head to her mom's hometown - Midnight Gulch.  Midnight Gulch used to have magic but now it's all gone.  Except that it hasn't.  Felicity knows that there is a little magic still left -- maybe enough to get her mom to stay in one place for once.
I picked up this book as the author is going to be a speaker at MLA this year.  I really enjoyed the story.  The idea of a girl who sees words everywhere and collects was truly unique.  I also enjoyed how all the characters interacted and were tied together with their family histories.  This is a great, fantasy story for kids.
