A girl with a soul of solitude, Eloise and a ghostly girl Anna have an adventure. A house is brought to life with the magical girl and Eloise and they have a friendship that is stronger than most. Until Eloise realizes something in common with something of her past with the girl. Her nostalgia dose begins.

I made that blurb. I am in love with the book Cicada Summer by Kate Constable and have read it 5 times. It is a brilliant book and I love it so much. The story is sublime, amazing and it’s very interesting. The cover is very nice also.

I took quite some time making examples and getting information so please read till end! 🙂
