Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Annie Richards knows there are a million things to look out for—bicycle accidents, chicken pox, runaway zoo animals. That's why being careful is so important, even if it does mean giving up some of her favorite things, like bike races with her best friend and hot dogs on the Fourth of July. Everyone keeps telling Annie not to worry so much, that she's just fine. But they thought her brother, Jared, was just fine too, and Jared died.

It takes a new neighbor to make Annie realize that her plans for being careful aren't working out as well as she'd hoped. And with a lot of help from those around her, Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine.

Synopsis:

Acclaimed author Linda Urban captures the sweet humor and tenderness of finding one's voice and making a friend, even when that seems impossible.

Synopsis:

“Do not let a mop sit overnight in water. Fix things before they get too big for fixing.” Fifth-grader Mattie Breen writes it all down. She has just one week to convince Uncle Potluck to take her on as his custodial apprentice before school starts. As his apprentice, shell have important work to do during lunch and recess . . . work that will keep her safely away from other fifth-graders. But when Matties plans come crashing down, she ends up with a friend who is hound dog true.

Angie Mashinski, October 7, 2013 (view all comments by Angie Mashinski)
It made me cry, I have never cried while reading a book before. It was about a girl who was scared after the sudden death of her brother and over
Time she slowly opened up. But it's an adventure and a struggle because she was hurting real bad. But she finds help and it just makes you happy to know people would be nice enough to help you. But it's an amazing book full of sadness, adventure, fondness and a whole lot of drama!
But overall it's an amazing book.
