'Sweet' book summary:
Reviewer: Melissa G.
It's rare to find a book at this reading level that explores a somewhat difficult subject matter with such delicacy. Waiting for the Magic does just that and more.
It delivers the perfect blend of warmth, emotion and humor. The characters, both young and old, are interesting and well-developed. Readers will easily connect with them, sympathize with them, and cheer for them. This unique book is a must read!
