There was a time when Midnight Gulch was known for its magic. That, however, was long before Felicity, her little sister, and her wandering mother move to town. Now all the magic left in the town is a small snicker, and of course the Beetle—a person who goes around town performing anonymous good deeds. Felicity loves what she finds in Midnight Gulch. She loves her aunt and uncle as well as her best friend Jonah. This is her first real home and she is determined to stay. She works hard and manages to break the curse on the town and her mother so that they can all live there happily.
