The Midnight Dress
by Karen Foxlee

Don't be deceived by the title of this book, it is much more than a story about a girl and a dress!  Rose and her father have just run out of gas in a small coastal town.  Much to Rose's mounting disappointment, she must attend school.  What she doesn't predict is that she will make a friend.

Pearl seems perfect to Rose; she's beautiful, popular and a great friend.  As their friendship grows, the time of the Harvest Parade and dance grows near as well.  All the girls plan their dresses, hair and make-up months prior to the event.  A desperate Rose goes to see the town 'witch', Edie, to see if she can make the dress.

Together Rose and Edie do make a dress, a beautiful midnight blue dress.  Does the dress hold a special magic?  What will happen when Rose wears it?  The Midnight Dress is a story of friendship, family and love.  I would recommend this book for middle to high school students.
