A Snicker of Magic

A Snicker of Magic
by Natalie Lloyd

Hardcover, 320 pages
Published February 25th 2014 by Scholastic Press 
  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 eves, 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.
My thoughts:
I thought I had written my review a long time ago for this book. But I can't find it and it has been long enough since I read it that I don't remember the details, thus the copy and paste from goodreads. However, I do remember that I loved this book. I was lucky enough to not only get an e-galley from NetGalley, but I also received a print ARC from the publisher. I had so much fun reading this book and I am always able to give it to readers that come in my library. Seriously, who can resist that cover?!
