This novel was super popular around my library the past holiday season. The strange looking creature and gorgeous coloring made it a novel I had to read.
Livy and her family have finally returned to Australia to visit her grandmother. While Livy had a great time her last visit, it was so long ago that she can’t remember it, but everything seems a bit familiar. When Livy goes to her old room, she finds a friend who has been waiting for her since she last left. She promised to help him find his way home, only she doesn’t ever remember meeting him. These two friends are going to need to work together to uncover clues from their past to help Livy keep her promise.
This book was super sweet. The magical elements make it an updated version of E.T. The puzzle reveals itself over time, keeping the reader engaged. It was interesting to see this story with an Australian backdrop. I grew to love these characters.
