Love, Ruby Lavender Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ruby Lavender used to have a good life. She and her grandmother, Miss Eula, were inseparable--they even drove the getaway car together for chickens rescued from the slaughterhouse! But this summer, Miss Eula will be in Hawaii, and Ruby's sure it'll be a lonely, empty, horrible season without her. What happens instead? Ruby makes a new friend, saves the school play, writes plenty of letters to her favorite (and only) grandmother . . . and finally stops blaming herself for her grandfather's death.

Synopsis:

Ruby and her grandmother, Miss Eula, were inseparable last summer. But this summer, Miss Eula will be in Hawaii, and Ruby's sure she'll be lonely. However, Ruby makes a new friend, saves the school play, and writes plenty of letters to her grandmother. An ALA Notable Children's Book.

Synopsis:

A charming and hilarious coming-of-age story about two chicken thieves, best friends, and how each learns to survive loss.
