A remarkable chapter book about a young girl striving for a better future doing what she loves, taking care of animals. A rare story that includes excellent character development, strong values and the struggles of finding true friendships. A great mentor is crucial to shaping this young woman's life along with discovering the invisible powers to guide to do what they do. Ivy hopes the power "to bring back life and stop suffering" is a power that can one day be her's as well.

A powerful and moving story for any young lady or lad.
