Nine-year-old Lucy Castor loves her life just the way it is. Her father reading her The Hobbit at night, her mother making spaghetti every Monday, but most of all, playing with her best friend, Ella, making magic in the tiny moments of everyday life. She certainly doesn’t expect anything different as fourth grade draws near.
Yet everything seems to be changing all at once—and not for the better, either.
Ella has stopped believing in magic and found some new, more stylish friends. Lucy’s weird neighbor, Chloe, might not be so weird after all. Biggest of all, her perfect world with her father, her mother, and Lucy herself is about to end, because Mrs. Castor is going to have a baby.
Lucy Castor Finds Her Sparkle is a beautiful story. I could easily identify with Lucy, and everything about the book made me fall I love with it. It reminded me almost of The Girl in the Tower. I would highly recommend Lucy Castor Finds her Sparkle to kids and adults ages seven and up.
