this book was full of magic which by the way matches the name that it was given. I enjoyed reading this book because it was very magical and i could relate to it! this book was mostly about a family with divorced parents and kids called Kirby, Nancy, and Brendon. During these family's life they are living in Florida home of the beaches and crabs where Nancy and her sister and brother are attending a new school and making new friends making it feel like they are completely normal!what is special about this typical family is the fact that they all received a special gift from their grandmother who died. She gave Kirby the gift of dance,Brendon the gift of music, and for Nancy the gift of magic.Later on Elizabeth learns that her high school "sweetheart", Tom Duncan lives just down the beach from her home.Nancy is determined to put back her parents and keep Tom Duncan away from her mom. Circumstances lead her to read about ESP, a special gift that the principal is interested about knowing, which is what Nancy was born to do...read minds!Kirby recognizes her talent of dancing as well as former dancer instructor madame vilar who recommends for Kirby a scholarship. Brendon takes to the piano without reading music and noticing his talent. This book was full of supernatural events that helped the reader understand the story more better!
