Terrific debut by local talent Carter Higgins, this middle grade novel sings with warmth, quirk and charm. Baseball, snackshops, summer, mystery and friendship tie this tale together along with its set of interesting characters Derby, Triple, and Marcus. A real winner!— Maureen Palacios
Garland, Derby, and Triple Clark spend each season traveling highways and byways in their Rambler--until summer, when small-town Ridge Creek, Virginia, calls them back. There they settle in, selling burgers and fries out of Garland's Grill after each game the Rockskippers play in their battered minor-league baseball stadium. Derby's summer traditions bring her closer than she's ever been to a real home that isn't on wheels, but this time, her return to Ridge Creek reveals unwelcome news. Now the person Derby loves most in town needs her help--and yet finding a way to do so may uncover deeply held stories and secrets.
Told in Derby's unforgettable voice, this warm-hearted debut novel is about taking risks, planting roots, and discovering the true definition of home.
A beautiful retelling of the legend of Snow and Rose, this gentle fairy tales brims with all the requisite traditions: dwarfs, missing person, enchanted forest and strange creatures. As in her highly imaginative picture books, first time middle grade novelist Emily Winfield Martin paints the sisters, Snow and Rose, as not exact opposites, but more like complimentary gears, who thrive on different aspects of the same thing. Recommended as a read-aloud, this beautifully illustrated tale will delight the young and young-at-heart! - Maureen
