A children’s novel set in Ann Arbor, The Fairy Box, is helping children who grieve as well as those who are in stepfamilies. Since its publication in December 2013, the book has reached Amazon Best Selling status in the category of children’s stepfamilies. Writer Judy Powers of Highland and Linda Nicholas of Brighton collaborated on the book after realizing the life-altering changes experienced by children who are grieving.

Grieving the death of her mother and angry over her father’s remarriage, Kate knows the box contains something special that will change her life forever. Young readers will be enchanted by an intelligent little dog, flying trains, disappearing houses and odd clues behind fairy doors that lead Kate and her family around Ann Arbor and into a world of healing magic.
