    Jennifer Jacquet: IMG Is Shame Necessary?



    Is Shame Necessary? is my first book, so I am far from having earned the right to discuss writing a book in general. But I can say something about... Continue »

two girls

one life-changing adventure

When Danya Quixotes family fortunes take a turn for the worse and her parents decide that they must sell her pet pony Sancho to make ends meet, Danya, well, snaps. She and her free-spirited best friend Pia decide to whisk Sancho away to Florida, where Danyas estranged grandmother lives. Danya is convinced her grandmother is sitting on a nest egg that could save Sancho, and so the two embark upon an epic trip along the majestic Mississippi River. As Danya and Pia face crocodiles, Louisiana casinos, and a surprising instance of what looks like divine intervention, they learn about the true power of family, discovering that magic exists if you know where to look and that sometimes the real treasure we're seeking is with us all along.

Synopsis:

Eleven-year-old Polly Peabody needs to make it start raining again. It rains every Monday afternoon on her family's rhubarb farm, until one Monday, when 1:00 P.M. passes without one raindrop. And then Polly's brother gets sick. Polly has to figure out how everything is connected and make it rain before her Aunt Edith sells the farm. Maybe with the help of her best friend, a talking rhubarb plant named Harry, Polly can face her fears and uncover her family's magical secret.

Magical things happen on the Peabody Rhubarb farm. The family home is a castle (literally), no one ever drowns in the lake, chocolate rhubarb grows along side your regular varieties, it rains every Monday at 1:00 pm, and the plants talk to eleven-year old Polly Peabody, although that's not something she likes to brag about. You see, she is a shy, socially awkward, scaredy-cat and the success or failure of her family's farm depends on her. When the unthinkable starts to happen (it stops raining which leads to more disasters), Polly must find the courage to overcome her fears and become the person she is destined to become.

This story celebrates the unique qualities that are in all of us and learning to be brave in the face of our greatest fears, all the while asking to believe that a "little bit of magic" never hurt, too.
