Absolutely loved this quirky combo of ice fishing, a magical fish, Irish dancing and addiction. Kate Messner weaves all of those elements into a cohesive and engaging narrative. Most importantly she addresses opioid addiction in a way that is accessible to middle grade kids. Readers will fall in love with Charlie and roots for her as she navigates some rough seas for a twelve-year-old. Would make a great classroom read aloud for 5th grade and up.

An interesting and potentially important book about addiction and magic and family.

Charlie is a girl.

Couldn't get past first chapter. Tried twice. Maybe because the protagonist is a male character (Charlie) and I'm used to females from Kate Messner? Decided not to spend any more time on it.
