Calling Sugar Hill a small town was an understatement. The shopping mall was Katie’s Emporium on Main Street, five hundred square feet of shopping heaven. The movie theater was the wall of the firehouse on Saturday night, you had to bring your own chair or sit on the ground. The museum was old man Flannerly’s house. He could tell you anything you wanted to know about the town’s history, or the country’s for that matter. He also had several old barns on his property that were completely stuffed to the brim with more memorabilia and trinkets than you could see in a day. The planetarium was Madame Belle’s backyard. She knew the name of every star in the sky. Between her telescope and magical talent, she could show you anything in the heavens as if it were sitting in your hand.
The sun had just set by the time Jade and April arrived in town, and as the streetlights flickered on one by one, Jade thought Main Street looked darker than she remembered. The street also seemed shorter, as they turned right onto the road that led to Joy’s house.
