It's the end of fourth grade, and Katie is dreading summer break. Her best friend is leaving town and she's stuck with her frenemy, Claire. To top off Katie's worries, there's a possibility that her family will have to move to Portland. She lives with her father and younger brother, and her mother is a famous country star who put her career and stardom before her family. Katie has an honest voice, and deals with many issues that children face including abandonment, acceptance, family relationships, and friendship. Anne Warren Smith delicately and deftly balances these weighty issues with warmth and humor. A great middle grade read.
