This book is my favorite book eeevveer. It's about a girl named Felicity Pickle (or Flea Pickle, whatever you prefer) who's lived here, there, and everywhere, which is better then saying nowhere at all. Felicity, all her life, collected words. She sees them everywhere. Sometimes over people's heads, sometimes clouding around bags. She believes that the words around people's heads are what that person is thinking or feeling.
One day her little family (Her mom, her little sister Frannie Jo, and Biscuit her dog) arrives in Midnight Gulch, where she immediately feels like there's a hint of magic. On her first day of school, she meets a boy named Jonah, whose ride of choice is a wheelchair.
The two of them venture out and try to break the mystery of the almost-magic town, the shrouded Stoneberry brothers, and Felicity's mom's wandering heart. All before that wandering heart wanders away.
