Read in December, 2009

This one made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The easiest way to sum up the plot is "Practical Magic." The magical powers are somewhat believable, with a woman who "has to give people things" and a child who "knows where things belong". Claire's power is the best though: she makes magical food out of magical plants. Makes me want to grow a magical garden!

Favorite Quotes:

Suddenly there were hundreds of oranges rolling everywhere, into the bread section, under people's carts, and Bay could almost hear them laughing, like they were suddenly struck with the joy of freedom.

Big clouds, white and gray like circus elephants, began to lumber across the sky with the wind.
