Piper Reed: Navy Bratby Kimberly Willis Holt
Synopses & Reviews
Its not easy being the middle child, especially when your dad is a Navy Chief. Meet Piper Reed, a spunky nine-year-old who has moved more times than she can count on one hand. From Texas to Guam, wherever Piper goes, adventure follows, inspired by her active imagination, free-wheeling spirit, and a bit of sister magic. Unlike her older sister, Tori, Piper loves being part of a Navy family, and unlike her little sister, Sam, Piper is no prodigy genius. Piper is Pipeer - fearless and full of life.
National Book Award-winning author Holt portrays the life of a Navy family with warmth and humor, in this story based on her own childhood. From Texas to Guam, wherever young Piper goes, adventure follows. Illustrations.
When a man joins the Navy, his family joins the Navy.
