The Never Girls: the space between
Summary: Continuing from the first book, in a blink, Kate, Lainey, Mia, and Gabby have made it home. Before the girls left Never Land, Lainey was spending a lot of time with an animal-talent fairy named Fawn. Fawn believed Lainey could be an animal-talent Clumsy so she was teaching Lainey how to talk to animals. Once Lainey was back home, she tried talking to the neighbor dog with no luck. Just as she arrived at her house, she spotted Milkweed, a dairy mouse

Another tiny discrepancy between this and Peter Pan's world: The Space Between is all about another unusual way to get into Neverland. This time it's a small crack or whole between the two worlds. Even so, the stories remain charming and have some solid messages for the reader about developing talents.

Lainey fears she has no talent, but has a deep connection to animals. In Neverland, she's learning how to speak to them like a real animal-talent fairy, or at the very least, an animal-talent

The girls go back home but Milkweed, a mouse, seems to come through with them. Mia's cat seems to be missing now. Then Lainey discovers a breach in a fence near their homes. Lainey goes back and finds Mia's cat who is reeking havoc in Never Land among the fairies. What is going on?

I enjoyed the girls finding a breach in the area between earth and Never Land. I also liked them fixing what the cat has done to the fairies. I like that there will be more stories between the girls and Never Land.

This is a sweet series, especially good for very advanced young readers. The writing is great and features a varied vocabulary, but the content is light and appropriate for little ones.

It was a cute story but it was kinda repetitive. I'm not too sure if I'll continue the series...

I enjoyed the book but it was not as good as the first one. It was very wordy and had a simple plot line.

Finished this up and now I need to hustle on finding the sequels.

This review was originally shared on Lazy Day Literature.

Mia, Kate, Lainey, and Gabby returned home from Never Land at the end of In A Blink and are not too happy about it when they realize the bag of fairy dust the Queen gave them has disappeared. And so has the cat! Meanwhile, in Pixie Hollow, Fawn realizes that one of the dairy mice, Milkweed, is missing, and in her search for him finds a portal to the Clumsies' world!

The Girls Remain Appealing Companions

This is the second book in the Never Girls series. I was pleased with the first book and this book is equally good and follows closely upon the first. "Never Girls" is a very engaging series. It seems well designed for its intended audience - readers who are ready for a book that is just a bit more advanced than a basic chapter book.

The four girls who visit Pixie Hollow, (Kate, Mia, Lainey, and Gabby), continue to display distinct personalities and are more

Original Summary: While Kate, Lainey, Mia, and Gabby were having the time of their lives in Pixie Hollow, they all knew that it would soon come to an end. Skye, the seeing- talent fairy, rushed to tell the girls that it was time to leave; if they did not leave now, they may never know when they might get a chance again. But as the girls settled back into normal life, something still seemed very off. There were mice with bells, cats missing, and flamingos in the garden! Pixie Hollow was with them ...more

My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.

This is the second book in the Never Girls series and focuses, more or less, on Lainey, the shyer of the girls. Lainey is an average kid and feels that she has no talents...nothing special. She feels she just kinda blends in and is not really noticeable. She soon discovers that she does have a talent and she is "awakening" to her self. This is a story of one girl's journey of beginning. I think this book is better than the first. I have sent this to my 6 year old granddaughter. I can't wait for ...more

The second book in the Fairies series is another fun, quick read. The girls are returning home and are told that no one ever gets to come back. They are very upset, especially Lainey, who has a love of animals and was learning their language. Once back home they notice things seem to be a little off. What is happening with the magic?

This book focuses around Lainey and her desire to learn how to communicate with the animals. Of the four girls, she is the one with the lowest self-esteem. This book

All three of my kids enjoyed this book (although Myles told me he didn't like it too much once I was finished yet he never complained when I read it). It was a quick and easy read. Nothing at all inappropriate. Perfect for their ages (2, 4, and 6)

Second book in the series and I actually enjoyed it much more than the first. We've been reading roughly a chapter a week but as the story got going, this week we've been reading a chapter a night. Tonight we read 4 chapters straight to finish it off and I genuinely can't wait to read the next one!

Six yr old enjoyed it, three yr old did not. I am less inclined to overlook the "Clumsy" derogatory term fairies are using for humans, but still moving through (perhaps they'll knock it off in the third book?). Onward!

I can see how 2nd grade girls are going to like this series - fairies, but not dumb. Full of adventure, and lots and lots of space to further the adventure in your own imagination - fodder for dreaming and playing.

I didn't think this book was as great as the first one. My little sister (7-years-old) didn't like it as much either. It just wasn't as exciting as the last one. I found it to be a bit boring, honestly. We look forward to the next one which we hope will have the same magical ambiance of the first.

Still such a fun idea and held the attention of my daughter thoroughly, but felt less substantial and more inconsequential than the first book. For just over 100 pages, I feel like this adventure should have covered much more ground than it did.

My girls really enjoy these Never Land books and the fairy world adventures. They ask for at least 2 or more chapters at a time.
