Today is National Read Aloud Day! The wonderful Jacqueline Woodson…
The Magic of Melwick Orchard by Rebecca Caprara
I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
What a magical story! I was instantly drawn to the title and cover illustration and was captivated the moment I started reading. This book will be a favorite for those that love reading about magic, family, and friendship. Caprara has a distinct voice in her writing, or at least in this book. I really loved the words that the Junie, Isa, and Kira used and I am definatelh adding them to my vocabulary. You can tell this book was well thought out and a lot of love was put into each character, setting, and the plot as a whole. The ending was wrapped up quickly, but I think it was done well. It felt a little fast, but it didn’t need to be drawn out either. I would read more by Caprera and look forward to more books.
This is definitely a must read book!
