Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Newbery Medal winner and bestselling author Sharon Creech comes a grand, sweeping yarn that is a celebration of the great and unexpected gifts of love, friendship, and forgiveness. With a starred review from Kirkus Reviews calling it an "enchanting tale to treasure," The Great Unexpected captures the heart and the imagination.

Humorous and heartfelt, this is a story of pairs—of young Naomi and Lizzie, both orphans in present-day Blackbird Tree, USA, and of Sybil and Nula, grown-up sisters from faraway Rook's Orchard, Ireland, who have become estranged.

Young Naomi Deane is brimming with curiosity and her best friend, Lizzie Scatterding, could talk the ears off a cornfield. Naomi has a knack for being around when trouble happens. She knows all the peculiar people in town—like Crazy Cora and Witch Wiggins. But then, one day, a boy drops out of a tree. Just like that. A strangely charming Finn boy. And then the Dingle Dangle man appears, asking all kinds of questions. Curious surprises are revealed—three locked trunks, a pair of rooks, a crooked bridge, and that boy—and soon Naomi and Lizzie find their lives changed forever.

As two worlds are woven together, Creech reveals that hearts can be mended and that there is indeed a gossamer thread that connects us all.

Synopsis:

Anastasia hates her nose, her body, and her eyes. How can she become a bookstore owner when she doesnand#39;t have any self-confidence? Modelling school, of course!

Synopsis:

Outspoken and irresistable as always, Anastasia Krupnik finds that when you exaggerate the truth, things donand#39;t always turn out as planned.

Synopsis:

Unfazed by her friendsand#39; decision to give up boys, Anastasia Krupnik answers a personal ad she finds in a magazine. When the special andquot;heandquot; decides he wants to meet her, Anastasia finds herself in quite a predicament--especially since her letters might have stretched the truth just a tiny bit...

Synopsis:

In her seventh adventure, the irrepressible Anastasia decides that she needs more poise and confidence--especially since her chosen career is to be a bookstore owner. A flyer on her fatherand#39;s windshield convinces her that charm school at Studio Charmante will teach her just that. But a week in modeling school may be just what Anastasia needs to realize that, just maybe, she already has what it takes.
