The Three Rules of Everyday Magic

Kate has trouble believing in magic, especially since the people she loves keep leaving her. But when Grammy tells her the three rules of everyday magic — believe, give, and trust — Kate can't resist believing, at least a little. Following Grammy's advice, she tries to bring her father, her best friend, and even Grammy herself back to her. Nothing turns out as Kate expects, yet the magic of giving — of trusting that if you love and give, good things will happen, even if you don't see them happen — will change Kate and her family forever.

This quiet and lyrical middle-grade coming-of-age novel for fans of The Same Stuff as Stars, which is punctuated by letters to her absent dad, will tug at readers' heartstrings.

"If skeptical Kate can believe, maybe magic will bring Dad home and help her win Sofia back. Perhaps it will make Kate, who hasn’t played music since Dad left, feel like singing again. Narrated in Kate’s quiet first-person voice, the book is divided into three parts, one for each rule, and is punctuated with Kate’s unsent letters to Dad.... Reading cultivates empathy. This should do the trick." — Kirkus Reviews
