Ms. Ebner has created a brilliant story with strong characters that tug at your heart. While this has fantasy elements, the real story is Sam's journey to happiness, acceptance and ultimately, peace. She has a fire within her, and it burns, good or bad, with her emotions, and even though she is shunned by even her own father, she finds acceptance with two others, a teacher and a mysterious boy, that the town as a whole has labeled as odd and one not to closely associate with. The ending managed to completely take me by surprise, which doesn't happen a whole lot... it was a twist that I never thought of! But it fits the story so well. I also like the symbol and presence of the ladybug (ladybird) in this story. It is really original, and I loved how it played into the plot and guided Sam's journey.

This is a short, tender and poignant story about a young girl in a small town, cursed by rumour and circumstance. With a life filled with sadness, she takes her moments of happiness whenever she can, in the keys she finds which have been left by her mother. She is given a riddle to solve, but struggles. She finds friendship, and more, in a young neighbour - one she has never spoken to before. Is this the change in her life that she has been so desperately wanting? Ladybird, Ladybird... is exceptionally well written, with a storyline that will tug at your heartstrings. This book is an unexpected treasure, one to be savoured again and again. Highly recommended.
