#BookReview: The Magic of Melwick Orchard by Rebecca Caprara

About the Book:

After more moves than they can count, Isa's family finally puts down roots. 

People in town are afraid of the abandoned orchard behind their home, but Isa and her sister Junie are happy to have acres of land to explore.

But when Junie gets sick, Isa's mom falls into a depression, and medical bills force Isa's dad to work more. 

No one notices that Isa's clothes are falling apart and her stomach is empty.

Out of frustration, Isa buries her out-grown sneakers in the orchard. 

The next day a sapling sprouts buds that bloom to reveal new shoes. 

Can Isa use this magical tree to save her family?

My Review: When this first came my way I thought it was a little weird.  A tree where you plant shoes and you get new ones? Man where was this when I was growing up.  I really enjoyed this book although parts of it were a little out there.  But for a middle grade fantasy story with a really bad situation this was a great book.  This book was full of magic, heartbreak, and just felt very real for the situation.  I loved all the characters and how everything turned out.  This is a great book to add to your TBR! 

Do I Recommend this book? Yes a great quirky fantasy for middle graders!
