But when she arrives in Midnight Gulch, Felicity thinks her luck's about to change.

“A delightful and inspiring debut.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“This tale offers all the other earmarks of fine storytelling, including colorful, eccentric characters, an original, highly likable narrator and a mighty ‘spindiddly’ plot.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
