In this new place and in the new school she is struggling to adjust and being bullied doesn’t help at all. When her guardian angel Jody appears, she has difficulty in beliving in the existence of her angel. Jody however teaches Macy the little things which will make her adjust, face her bullies, let go of what she has left and embrace the now and make new friends.

“Star light, star bright. First star I see tonight. Wish I may, wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight….Please send me a friend.”

-pg. 12

What I really like about this book is that Jody is in no way doing magic and helping Macy, she is there as a support system, which Macy likes and dislikes all the time. A very sweet book aimed at 8- 12 year olds, which helps kids a lot. It talks about facing bullies, facing world with self-confidence and standing up for your values, which you should never be ashamed of. The characters are real, believable and lovable as well.

I think this one will be a great gift for the little girl you know and will help her a lot.eBook Provided via Pump Your Book Promotions by the author.

  1. Veens, this does sound like a great book for young adults, especially girls in the age group you mentioned. Bullying is a problem at our schools, and this book could help girls learn some coping skills. Terrific review. 🙂

  2. This sounds like a lovely book for children! I think it’s important for kids to learn how to cope with things like bullying and starting a new school. Great review!

  3. Did I not comment on this earlier in the week? Whoops, sorry Veens. I read it on the day it was posted.

    Thanks for the great review of Nancy’s book. She’s working on the sequel right now. I happen to know it’s wonderful. 🙂
