Review first posted on Views from the Tesseract I first heard about this book I couldn t wait to read it A middle grade fantasy with gorgeous cover art and a story that references Hans Christian Andersen s The Nightingale That s a surefire way to piue my interest Sometimes this backfires on me and my high hopes just don t live up to the actual text But after reading this I m happy to report it exceeded expectationsTwelve year old Little John is spending his summer in Texas working for his father clearing brush and trees from Mr King s property While he s working he hears someone singing and he s astonished to find the sweet voice to a little girl hiding out in a tree Young Gayle is something rare in Little John s life a bit of happiness in a life that has become shadowed by regret and loss This half wild girl sees Little John as her protector someone she s willing to trust and share her secrets with Secrets like the magic of her healing song But Little John s family is struggling to survive and when Mr King makes Little John an offer he ll have to choose between helping his family and betraying his new friend This is a story of growing up and the weight of responsibility A story of beauty and the price of betrayal A story of magic and hopeIf you re not familiar with Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tale The Nightingale you might want to look it up prior to reading this story but it s not strictly necessary Nikki Loftin uses the fairy tale imagery and elements evoking echoes of the tale but composes a contemporary story all her own As you might already guess from the summary and the fact that it draws on Andersen this isn t an easy story to read When the story opens Little John and his family are already suffering from deep pain and loss Little John is lost separated from the boyhood he had but nowhere near becoming a man When magic comes into his life it comes in the form of a waif of a girl who can sing with astonishing beauty and is in need of a friend and protector It s a hard story to read you can see the betrayals on the horizon and the bitter choices that Little John will make But it is also a beautiful story tinged with redemption and hope for a better dayThoughtful tween readers who enjoy a powerful story with a bittersweet ending will want to pick this one up It s a rare and beautiful treasure lightly brushed with magickay nielsenhans christian andersenthe nightingalemedNote An advanced reader copy was provided by the publisher

A uniue example of magical realism for middle grades that manages to ground itself in authentic emotions and the too rarely seen reality of poverty Little John is an entirely sympathetic conflicted character forced to make tough decisions and worrying too much about grown up problems While the adults in his life seem to fail him they all have hidden complexity and even the Emperor vaccilates between appearing evil and pitiable And Gale steers away from being too angelic full of all the pouts and personality of a real young child The blend of magic and reality is well balanced and this reader had no trouble believing in the few magical elements I found the rather tidy ending to be in keeping with the fairy tale sensibility This is a world that needs a bit of magic While the story overall centers on financial struggles the lingering effects of tragedy and loss and the sometimes harsh reality of life even for children Little John and Gale s connection the still strong strands of old friendships the concern and assistance that comes from neighbors and the magic of Gale s escape keep the story ultimately hopeful and uplifting Original and thought provoking Chelsea
