Publisher Comments:

Best-selling children's book author Paula Danziger brings us the perfect novel for middle grade readers--a touching story incorporating the themes of friendship,loss, love and perseverance.

Skate Tate hates change. But her whole life is changing at once. It's just not fair! Sixth grade is tough. Her new school is bigger, the classes are harder, and Skate's group of close friends is growing apart.

Only her Great Uncle Mort (GUM for short) can help her deal with it all. He's not afraid of anything. When tragedy strikes, GUM sends Skate and her family on a road trip that will change their lives forever--starting with Plymouth, Massachusetts. Skate is taking it all down in her scrapbook, but will she ever learnhow to handle what lies just around the corner?

Synopsis:

Skate Tate hates change. But her whole life is changing at once. It's just not fair! Sixth grade is tough. Her new school is bigger, the classes are harder, and Skate's group of close friends is growing apart. Only her Great Uncle Mort (Gum for short)

Synopsis:

Skate Tate has just started middle school and everything is changing. Her friends and her school are different. Only her close-knit family seems the same. Great-Uncle Mort (GUM for short) is their center. GUM supports Skate's dream of becoming an artist, encourages her to embrace new experiences and occupies many pages in her precious scrapbooks. When GUM dies unexpectedly, Skate must deal with a very painful change. GUM leaves the Tates his fortune on one condition — that they use it to travel and document their trips. On their first trip — to Plymouth, MA — Skate begins to sort out her feelings about his death and come to terms with her grief, accepting these changes as GUM would have wanted her to.
