Fans of magical realism and Kate DiCamillo's books should pick this up.
In his grandpas attic, a boy finds a pile of toys, old but never played with - and maybe a bit magic... They are the start of an amazing school year of new friendships, family secrets and a Wishing Well that might have more to it than most of the town thinks...
A book to make you laugh and tear-up, this would make a great classroom read-aloud. ~ Reviewed by Leah Moore

The wishing well in Cliffs Donnelly is granting wishes. The town believes it is magic, but Lizzy, Ryan, and Ernest know the truth. The kindness of kids becomes contagious as a town on the brink of closing finds ways to work together and rebuild. Calabrese will renew your faith in the power of good deeds and thinking of others. ~ Reviewed by Necole Zemp

We follow Lu in the last book of the Track series, as his changes include not being a full-time runner but is also doing the hurdles (which, of course, is a metaphor for his life), learning about his father’s past, his mother’s surprise pregnancy, overcoming bullies and fears he has. Not to mention the day-to-day issues of being an albino. Yet, Lu, while having self-confidence issues, also has a good hold on who he is. That is, until he starts to have the changes occur and he redefines himself. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
