3 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
Fans of Kate DiCamillo and Katherine Applegate will fall in love with this tug-at-your-heartstrings middle grade novel about one girl who is desperate to find the "perfect home" as she moves from one town to the next with her Grandmother. Eleven-year-old Jubilee Johnson is an expert at three things: crafting, moving, and avoiding goodbyes. On the search for the "perfect place," she and her Nan live by their Number One Relocation Rule -- just the two of them is all they need. But Jubilee's starting to feel like just two is a little too close to alone. Desperate to settle down, Jubilee plans their next move, Hope Springs, Texas -- home of her TV crafting idol, Arletta Paisley. Here she meets a girl set on winning the local fishing tournament and a boy who says exactly the right thing by hardly speaking at all. Soon, Jubilee wonders if Hope Springs might just be the place to call home. But when the town is threatened by a mega-chain superstore fronted by Arletta Paisley, Jubilee is faced with skipping town yet again or standing up to her biggest bully yet. With the help of her new friends and the one person she never thought she'd need -- her Momma -- will Jubilee find a way to save the town she's come to love and convince Nan that it's finally time to settle down?

This is a really cute MG story about finding your place & making a difference. Jubilee Johnson & her grandmother move whenever things get tough or complicated—it happens a lot. They settle on the hometown of Jubilee‘s crafting idol for their latest move only to discover, what you see on tv isn‘t always the truth. When the arrival of a big chain store threatens the survival of local shops, Jubilee and her friends take action. Recommended.

So why not read an ebook... I'm sitting in the car waiting on my youngest to finish skating..... Because I dislike driving at night and this skating rink is almost 30 minutes from my home..
