Forever Glimmer Creek

Twelve-year-old Rosie Flynn 's film-making skills may be the answer to uncovering the miracles of her own and bringing her father home.

There ’ s no accounting for Miracles, at least that ’ s what the folks of Glimmer Creek say. Every month, one lucky inhabitant survives danger, and bits of magic cling to them for a lifetime.

Rosie Flynn doesn ’ t forge how to find a Miracle but knows for sure they ’ re real. It ’ s the same way she ’ s certain she ’ ll lways have her two best friends, Henry and Cam, that she ’ ll be a famous movi director someday, and that she and her Mama are the perfect team of two.

But when someone Rosie loves goes missing, she just might fin that the true Miracle of Glimmer Creek is much different than she ’ d always believed and that the relationships she holds dear are the most fortunate gift of all.

Forever Glimmer Creek is a heartwarming, beautifully written, gentle-yet-powerful middle grade story about Rosie, a bo who lives in thi tin town where unusual miracles may—or may not—be part of the landscape, and who is navigating a complex set of changing friendships and family relationships.

I also like how the famous miracles in the book were subtly woven in and never felt overdone; Hackney did a great job of showing other perspectives besides Rosie 's ( such as a skeptical group of older girls) on the nature of the miracles, introducing a sense of magical uncertainty.
