Felicity Pickle has spent most of her life on the move. Mama is restless and doesn’t like to stay in one place for too long. When Mama, Felicity, and younger sister Frannie Jo drive in to Midnight Gulch, Felicity can’t help thinking that maybe this time things will be different; maybe this time they’ll stay. Not only is Midnight Gulch is Mama’s home town, but when they arrive, Felicity hears a “Yes! Yes! Yes!” drumbeat in her chest.

Felicity needs a miracle, but fortunately Midnight Gulch is a magic town, and everything is not always as it seems. Or at least it used to be a magic town, and Felicity, who can see words dancing through the world, is determined to help Midnight Gulch find its magic and help her family find their home.

Filled with quirky and absolutely lovable characters, A Snicker of Magic is a book with heart, one not to be missed by anyone who appreciates that every one, and every town, has a story to tell. But mostly it’s a book for anyone who understands the value of words — and ice cream.
