Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This past May, Samantha Russell lost her best friend, Juliana, to cancer. Now there is no one to share secrets, gossip, and dreams; no reason to keep taking dance class, another passion they shared. Then Sammie meets Mona, a virtual Jules lookalike, in summer school. The two of them bond right away, and wind up sharing an apartment in San Francisco. It's thrilling, being out in the world for the first time-but something is not quite right. Mona may look a bit like Jules, but Jules didn't have a bipolar mother. She didn't have relationships that tore her apart. And, most of all, Jules didn't know what is was like to live with someone who can't stop grieving. Sammie and Mona have to face the most difficult things in their life-alone, and together-because the past has a way of catching up with the present, if you're not careful. This sequel to A Time for Dancing is equally evocative, poignant, funny, and heart-wrenching-and well worth the wait.

Synopsis:

This sequel to the acclaimed "A Time for Dancing" finds Samantha Russell mourning her best friend, Juliana. Sammie soon meets Mona, a Jules lookalike. Soon the girls must face the most difficult things in their life.

Synopsis:

The first day of school can be lonely and scary, especially when you don't speak the same language as everyone else. Sumi only knows one phrase in English, "Hello, my name is Sumi." This doesn't seem nearly enough to prepare her for a big school with wide stairs, noisy children, and a mean classmate.



From the author of the Ezra Jack Keats Award winner Dear Juno comes this thoughtful picture book about a young Korean girl on her first day of school. Beautiful, expressive illustrations show how a considerate teacher and even a new friend help Sumi discover that school might not be so lonely after all.



Illustrated by Joung Un Kim.
