A uniue example of magical realism for middle grades that manages to ground itself in authentic emotions and the too rarely seen reality of poverty Little John is an entirely sympathetic conflicted character forced to make tough decisions and worrying too much about grown up problems While the adults in his life seem to fail him they all have hidden complexity and even the Emperor vaccilates between appearing evil and pitiable And Gale steers away from being too angelic full of all the pouts and personality of a real young child The blend of magic and reality is well balanced and this reader had no trouble believing in the few magical elements I found the rather tidy ending to be in keeping with the fairy tale sensibility This is a world that needs a bit of magic While the story overall centers on financial struggles the lingering effects of tragedy and loss and the sometimes harsh reality of life even for children Little John and Gale s connection the still strong strands of old friendships the concern and assistance that comes from neighbors and the magic of Gale s escape keep the story ultimately hopeful and uplifting Original and thought provoking Chelsea Not Just Roommates of Gayle that puts her future in jeopardy Inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen story Nightingale's Nest is an unforgettable novel about a boy with the weight Cassidy Harte and the Comeback Kid on his shoulders and a girl with the gift Shadow of the Vampire of healing in her voice.

Magical realism in children s novels is a rarity It s not unheard of but when children s authors want fantasy they write fantasy When they want reality they write reality A potentially uncomfortable mix of the two is harder to pull off Ambiguity is not unheard of in books for youth but it s darned hard to write Why go through all that trouble For that reason alone we don t tend to see it in children s books Kids like concrete concepts Good guys vs bad guys This is real vs this is a dream But a clever author one who respects the intelligence of their young audience can upset expectations without sacrificing their story When author Nikki Loftin decided to adapt Hans Christian Andersen s tale The Nightingale into a middle grade contemporary novel she made a conscious decision to make the book a work of magical realism A calculated risk Loftin s gambit pays off Nightingale s Nest is a painful but ultimately emotionally resonant tale of sacrifice and song A remarkably competent book stronger for its one of a kind choices It doesn t seem right that a twelve year old boy would carry around a guilt as deep and profound as Little John s But when you feel personally responsible for the death of your little sister it s hard to let go of those feelings It doesn t help matters any that John has to spend the summer helping his dad clear brush for the richest man in town a guy so extravagant the local residents just call him The Emperor It s on one of these jobs that John comes to meet and get to know The Emperor s next door neighbor Gayle About the age of his own sister when she died Gayle s a foster kid who prefers sitting in trees in her own self made nest to any other activity But as the two become close friends John notices odd things about the girl When she sings it s like nothing you ve ever heard before and she even appears to possibly have the ability to heal people with her voice It doesn t take long before The Emperor becomes aware of the treasure in his midst He wants Gayle s one of a kind voice and he ll do anything to have it The uestion is what does John think is important His family s livelihood or a the full throated song of one little girl How long did it take me to realize I was reading a middle grade adaptation of a Hans Christian Andersen short story Let me first tell you that when I read a book I try not to read even so much as a plot description beforehand so that the novel will stay fresh and clear in my mind With that understanding it s probably not the worst thing in the world that it took a 35 year old woman thirty nine pages before she caught on to what she was reading Still I have the nasty suspicion that many a savvy kid would have picked up on the theme before I did As it stands we ve seen Andersen adapted into middle grade novels for kids before Breadcrumbs for example is a take on his story The Snow ueen as well as some of his other stranger tales They say that he wrote The Nightingale for the singer Jenny Lind with whom he was in love All I know is that in the original tale the story concentrates on the wonders of the natural world vs the mechanical one In this book Loftin goes in a slightly different direction It isn t an over reliance on technology that s the problem here It s an inability to view our fellow human beings as just that Human beings Come to think of it maybe that s what Andersen was going for in the first place It was the writing of course that struck my attention first Loftin gives the book beautiful seuences filled with eually beautiful sentences There s a section near the end that tells a tale of a tree that fails to keep hold of a downy chick but is redeemed by saving another bird in a storm This section says succinctly everything you need to know about this book I can already see the children s book and discussion groups around the country that will get a kick out of picking apart this parable It s not a hard one to interpret but you wouldn t want it to beAs for the characters there wasn t a person here that I couldn t recognize as real I was uite taken with the fact that Loftin continually sidesteps a lot of the usual middle grade tropes Gayle s nasty foster brother Jeb for example could easily have been labeled the typical bully type character for this book Bullies in children s books after all have a tendency to be one note characters Jeb in contrast is capable of talking like a normal human being from time to time He s a horrible human being at other times but at least you get the sense that he s not just a walking two dimensional caricature It makes a difference The ending is going to be problematic for some folks It is not I should say unsatisfying I think even people who don t have a problem with what it says will only have a problem with HOW it goes about saying it But the end of the book goes so far as to make it clear that this story really doesn t take place in the real world in which we live The characters face real world problems but that doesn t preclude the presence of something magical There are things in heaven and earth Horatio and all that jazz For some readers this may feel like a kind of betrayal As if the author didn t have the guts to stay in the real world from start to finish but instead had to rely on something otherworldly for her climax I don t see it that way Loftin s choices seem very deliberate here from page one onward Just because something is magical that doesn t mean you can t interpret the book in other ways Don t like the supernatural element at the end Then why are you assuming it s real After all we re getting this whole story through Little John s perspective Who s to say he s the world s most reliable narrator Just because a book is written for children that doesn t mean you have to take it at face value In any case I don t believe the magic detracts in the least from what Loftin is saying here about the banality of poverty This isn t a book that romanticizes what it s like to be poor It s just Little John s everyday existence to a certain extent And with the introduction of The Emperor readers get to see firsthand how money or the lack thereof has a lot to do with self worth and what you have to do with your pride and sense of self worth when you re indebted to another person Little John witnesses firsthand his own father s humiliation at the hands of the Emperor and then finds himself in possession in a sense of something The Emperor wants But rather than give him power this just focuses the rich man s attention on the boy making him easy prey Better that you never have something the wealthy think that they need And as Little John says at one point What was right didn t have a thing to do with what was Reading the book I found it enormously painful But I at least had the wherewithal to realize that it was uniuely painful to me as a mother Any parent reading this is going to instantly fret and worry and think about Gayle s position in her foster home But for kids reading this book they re going to identify with Little John and Gayle as children not as parents This is a book about terrible decisions made for the most part by good people This can at times make the story emotionally hard to follow but I like to think Ms Loftin had things well in hand when she came up with her tale There s a great comfort in knowing that even when you screw up royally you can still find forgiveness If kids take nothing else away from this book I hope that they understand that much Smart and beautiful by turns The Nightingale s Nest does one thing that few will contest Once you ve read it you ll have a hard time getting it out of your head For ages 10 and up Echoes old John Fischer Jr Simpatico or Little John as he’s always been known is spending his
