Reviews of Pixie Dust by Bronwyn MacRitchie

I didn't know what to expect with this book - I love stories that remove me from regular life and I must say this one really came through. It's sad and funny and really well told. One minute you're laughing, the next crying. Really well worth the read. It only took me 2 nights to read the whole book, I couldn't put it down.

This is a great story of survival, resilience and sibling love. I love the way Bronwyn mixes the sad with humour. Very cleverly written. I must read!

What a wonderful story, so well told. Often poignant, sometimes heartbreaking yet sprinkled with love and humour. The unbreakable bond of sibling love shines through in this recollection of the trials and tribulations of growing up in rural Australia.
