Samantha was born under a full moon to a mother already dead. Revived by doctors and given to her unloving father, Samantha was raised a cursed child, her only friend the ghost of her mother who speaks to her through keys that open a secret box under her bed.

From the inside out, Sam burns with life, a fire so vivid it keeps her peers at a distance, all except one. Leith, a quiet farm boy with a broken heart and demons of his own, enjoys the seclusion his classmates grant him, but the seclusion is all too familiar to Sam, drawing her interest.

For the first time in their lives, fate pushes them together, but when their worlds collide . . .

. . . fires burn.

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.
