Delilah Dusticle by A.J. York 4/5 stars
Publisher: A.J. York Length: 33 pages Format: Kindle
Goodreads: Delilah Dusticle has special powers, she can completely eradicate dust. With her quiver pouch of special dusters Delilah can run up walls and reaches places others just can’t. As a maid in the Fenchurch-Whittington house Delilah’s unusual skills soon lead to her being promoted to Chief Dust Eradicator and Remover. Until one day a broken heart leads to her powers taking an expected turn. This is the first in a series of touching and funny stories about Delilah Dusticle. Follow her on a journey of self-discovery, friendship and adventure.
Geared toward upper elementary kids, who have not quite aged into middle grade fiction, Delilah Dusticle tells the story of a maid who has special powers when it comes to eradicating dust. Of course, when she’s fired, she becomes depressed and doesn’t think she’s anyone special. A chance meeting with the wife of her former employer’s son turns it all around and Delilah digs out of her dusty depression to go into business with Abi.
There is a moral here: that even ordinary things (and people) can do extraordinary things. Delilah Dusticle is a fast read at just over thirty pages. We are hardly given time to grow attached to the characters before it’s over. We really only gain insight into Delilah and Abi, the wife mentioned above.
This is the first in a series, so I’m sure we’ll get to know the characters more as Delilah and Abi expand their business and their friendship.
