Description

The highly anticipated new stand-alone novel from rising star Natalie Lloyd! There's a lot Emma wants to tell her mother about: her job leading cemetery walking tours, her new drum set, and the fact that the town's most famous ghost, the Morning Glory, seems to be trying to send Emma a message. But Emma can't share any of this, because Emma's mom is dead. Luckily, there's a loophole. The women in Emma's family all have a special destiny that comes to them in the form of a dream, and when they finally achieve this destiny, they're rewarded with a vision of all their extraordinary ancestors. Emma has spent her whole life waiting to discover her destiny, and maybe see her mom again, even if just for a moment. But the dream never comes...Just when she's about to give up, she learns that the Morning Glory IS sending her messages, hints about a secret in Emma's family that could change everything. But can she solve the mystery in time to prove her destiny...and say a final farewell to the mother who was taken from her too soon?

        February 8, 2016
        In a folksy tale laced with supernatural mystery, Lloyd (A Snicker of Magic) poetically conveys the depth of 12-year-old Emma's emotions as she embarks on a quest to uncover a legendary secret. Except for the times when Emma is overcome by "the Big Empty," a feeling she gets when she misses her recently deceased mother, she is an ordinary girl. Still, there are things in her Blackbird Hollow home that are extraordinary, like flowers with magical powers, the haunted graveyard just beyond her house, the tantalizing "Boneyard Brew" served in her grandmother's cafe, and The Book of Days, which records the "destiny dreams" of her ancestors (interspersed through the story). When her grandmother, plagued by money worries, considers selling the family business, Emma is determined to save the cafe by finding treasure, reputedly buried in the graveyard. The book's evocative setting and cast of eccentric minor characters will draw readers into Emma's world—one warmed by friendship, love, and hope—to share in her discovery that the most valuable treasures lie within. Ages 8–12. Agent: Suzie Townsend, New Leaf Literary & Media.

      • content: Narrator Kate Simses's portrayal of 12-year-old Emma is youthful, spunky, and, at times, tinged with the sadness of "the Big Empty," a feeling that began with the recent death of Emma's mother. Simses's Southern accents give a sense of Black Bird Hollow and the Boneyard Café, owned by Emma's tattooed, motorcycle-riding Granny Blue. Doing great justice to Lloyd's colorful descriptions and flights of fancy, Simses skips through unique similes, heightens the tension of the haunted graveyard, and bursts into the songs embedded in the story. Her expression of the magical words and situations is as strong as her voicing of Emma's confusion about the Destiny Dream that will steer her future. S.W.
