5/5 stars!

Claire Legrand? Disappointing me? Never!

This is definitely a new favorite for me! I loved this book from the first page to the last. I don't read a lot of MG anymore, but this is for sure how you do it.

I wish this book would have been out when I was younger, because I truly found myself in these pages. In Finely, in her family, and in the Everwood. The way mental health was talked about and shown in this story really connected to how I felt when I was a child, struggling, but not understanding. Besides that, the story was still fun and meaningful. I loved the journey Finely took with her relationship with the new family she has found and her parents.

Everything about this book was the good kind of heartbreaking with tons of magic sprinkled through.
