Try though she might, ten-year-old Lucy Castor can’t seem to stop the world around her from changing in this charming and funny novel by Natasha Lowe in the tradition of the Penderwicks series.
Lucy’s life is perfect and she doesn’t want to change a thing. With everyone growing up around her, Lucy just wants everything to just stay the way it is. Then she discovers her mother is having another baby and Lucy is sure that her parents don’t want her anymore. Classic, heartwarming, and quirky, this cozy story is about holding onto the magic of childhood.
Discusses Real Problems that kids go through
Realistic environment in school and home
Personally believes that this book should be read in schools and book clubs.
Honestly though, I enjoyed this very much. I kept looking back at how my younger self would go to the library upset only to walk away empty handed. Where was Lucy back when I needed her! This definitely makes it to the top of my list for best middle grade books of 2018.
