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:

A perfect summer read set in a mysterious artists' estate in the idyllic Midwestern countryside

It's the summer before seventh grade, and twelve-year-old Raine O'Rourke's mother takes a sudden job at Sparrow Road--a dilapidated mansion that houses a group of eccentric artists. While Raine's mother works as the cook and housekeeper, Raine is left to figure out why she and her mother have really come to Sparrow Road. Secrets seem to be everywhere, but it's an unexpected secret from Raine's own life--the reason she's come to Sparrow Road--that changes her forever.

An affecting and beautifully written story of family and forgiveness, Sparrow Road is a perfect pick for the middle-grade set.
