Delsie has lived with her Grammy for as long as she can remember. But this summer Delsie feels like she's looking at their life with new eyes, and is questioning why she doesn't have a cool mom and a loving dad to live with, like most of her friends. And while she loves her grandmother, it's often hard to move her off the couch of their Cape Cod home, where she spends hours watching her beloved game shows. Delsie is a keen observer of the weather and notices other changes in the air, too--the most painful being a summer friend who seems to have outgrown her. Fortunately, though, Delsie has fabulous neighbors who are like family--and a special new friend--to help her realize she can weather pretty much any storm that comes her way.
Lynda Mullaly Hunt's compelling new novel, perfect for fans of her classic middle-grade novels One for the Murphys and Fish in a Tree, is an accessible, tender, and nuanced story about learning to love the family you have.
