Livie, the main character, did not only make me reconnect to my child-self but also helped me come to terms with the things in my past, things I can never change.
The Healing Spell by Kimberley Griffiths Little helped me understand my own fears when I was an eleven year old girl. Most of all, it made me understand and love my mother more than I already do or did.
This is one of the books that I highly recommend to both children and adults alike. It's an emotionally powerful book. It may not have the same effect on you but I can assure you that it is an excellent read. I am certain you will enjoy every word, every page. To me, this means I will be reading more books by Ms Little.
Back cover blurb:
Twelve-year-old Livie is living with a secret and it's crushing her. She knows she is responsible for her mother's coma, but she can't tell anyone. It's up to her to find a way to wake her momma up.
Stuck in the middle of three sisters, hiding a forbidden pet alligator, and afraid to disappoint her daddy, whom she loves more than anyone else, Livie struggles to find her place within her own family as she learns about the powers of faith and redemption. Livie's powerful, emotional, and sometimes humorous story will stay with readers long after the last line is read.
Set in the lush bayou of Louisiana, Kimberley Griffiths Little brings Livie's story to life with power and grace.
