This book tells the story of Maddy.
She is apprehensive about her first summer visit with her Grandmother who lives in the Bayou of Louisiana. Her older sisters tease Maddy that Grandmother is a witch, but when Maddy arrives she is immediately taken with the atmosphere and the beauty of her surroundings.
Whereas she feels a misfit and out of step at home in the city, here she feels very comfortable. The people she meets and the friends she makes as she learns to be comfortable with her magic is charming and draws you in to her world.
I particularly liked the relationships in this novel.
Often for this age group the conflict comes from the children being mean to each other, but with this story the conflict is external and the resolution well worth the read.
I loved this book. The atmospheric feel of the bayou and the accepting nature of the small community living there, was a pleasure to read.
