I loved the additions to her family tree--she's convinced she's related to famous people in history--and the little bits of magic.
Most of all, I loved the beautiful writing. Lines like, "... hoping my wish would wiggle through that bright slice of sky to the part of the universe that made good things happen."
A full-of-heart read for both kids and adults.
