July 13th, 2023

On her first day at a new school, Stazy (short for Anastasia), meets three other girls (Rena, Faye and Hali) who, like Stazy, have learning disabilities, in Stazy and the Magic List (Rebel Mountain $13.95), a middle grade novel by Nancy Hundal. They become friends when they learn they also share special secret qualities. The story is told through alternating internal monologues of each of the four girls highlighting the many difficulties young teens have fitting in. Hundal is a retired teacher-librarian and she has written twelve books for young people. Her first children’s book, I Heard My Mother Call My Name (HarperCollins, 1990) was awarded the Sheila A. Egoff B.C. Book Prize in 1991. 9781989996157
