As if being a witch isn't exciting enough, Maggie's desire for answers in a complicated world leads her on a fascinating journey. She is truly an investigative journalist in the making!! How lucky Maggie is to have her dog Blissful with her as her guardian and sounding board in a world where her concerns are not taken seriously. And how lucky is the reader to be able to "hear" the birds, "smell" the ocean, and "feel" Blissful's snuggles. Yes, the descriptions are that evocative and the writing is that good!!
Maggie has an important job to do. I love how she is able to remain true to herself and stay grounded in the sometimes hostile, rough and tumble world around her. In spite of her father's lack of encouragement and concerns for her family's reputation, Maggie accomplishes what's needed to be done with precocious insight.
How wonderful it would be if this modern-day Nancy Drew story develops into a series and preteen girls can continue to be delighted, all the while encouraged, like Maggie, to love who they are inside.
I hope to one day go back to the beach with Maggie and Blissful as they solve another mystery!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about this delightful character named Maggie and highly recommend this book.
This book targets middle-schoolers but has charm for readers of all ages. (I bought a copy for a 14-year-old who vacations on Nantucket.) Specific details about island life are captured in prose and sketches that bring the reader up-close to seagulls and sea lettuce, dune grass and salty air, kites and clambakes on the beach.
At the root of it all is Maggie herself — spunky, sensitive, talented and loyal. As the story unfolds, Maggie learns how to navigate a not-always-friendly world around her and how to draw upon the unrealized strengths within herself. After a thrilling development in the story, Maggie reflects that she has “tapped into a bottomless well of courage that lived deep inside her.” The story has an important focus on family and all its complexities — from Maggie becoming closer to a sometimes gruff father to her generation-spanning connection to Grammy Apple.
This delightful book is like the glittering fairy-tale tree that Maggie creates. It shows many sides of a young girl’s life — worries, appreciation of beauty, and fascination with the mysterious. The on-the-beach ending is satisfying and lyrical. The reader is with Maggie as she reaches a new stage of her life where she is at peace with the often conflicting forces of her life and confident about the future.
