Magic doesn – t work the way you think it will, but it’s what Kate needs as she confronts friendship trouble, her parents – divorce, and Grammy’s dementia in this emotionally resonant middle-grade novel by debut author Amanda
Kate has trouble believing in magic, especially since the people she loves keep leaving her. But when Grammy tells her the three rules of everyday magic believe, give, and trust Kate can – t resist believing, at least a little. Following Grammy’s advice, she tries to bring her father, her best friend, and even Grammy herself back to her. Nothing turns out as Kate expects, yet the magic of giving of trusting that if you love and give, good things will happen will change Kate and her family forever. This beautifully written coming-of-age story is about the power of kindness and the ties that bind families especially during hard times.
