"Highly recommended" review from School Library Connection!

Discussion started on

I have been anxiously awaiting reviews for my new book Lucy Castor Finds Her Sparkle.  This is my first book that isn't a fantasy so I have been feeling extra nervous, panicky, doing a lot of nail biting, etc, etc!!  Anyway, just got a really lovely review from School Library Connection and they have asked me to be their April author of the month!  I can't share the whole review yet but here is a nice snippet.  "This is a feel-good story that draws the reader into the magic and the changes of Lucy’s life in a way that is impossible to put down, the words flowing with an irresistible beauty. This would be a wonderful read-aloud, especially snuggling by a fire on a cold night!
Highly Recommended
