A Girl Called Joy Summary
For listeners aged nine and up comes a major new contemporary middle-grade series from award-winning author Jenny Valentine, perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Cath Howe and Lara Williamson!

Joy soon finds her usual irrepressible positivity and zest for life waning, but when the powers that be threaten to pull down a mighty oak tree, Joy decides to fight back and realises that not all magic requires wands and spells, and perhaps the most important sort of magic is the power, resilience and courage that was there all along....
