bookshelves: middle-grade, female-protagonist

Cassandra Jones’ creature comforts go rather awry when an accident at home lands her in hospital. She meets creatures and friends, looks forward to summer camp, hopefully not on crutches, doesn’t really appreciate her little sister, and appreciates her school friend a little too much. In short, she’s an ordinary ten-year-old with an ordinary family and friends. Young readers will easily relate to her, while parents of young readers just might want to rethink how their children see them. Failing to listen does get noticed. Mom and Dad’s disagreements are easily seen, even when they’re not heard. And wisdom may not always be appreciated, on either side of the age barrier.

Camp counselors who don’t care, friends who get jealous, sisters who are loyal, and creatures, human and otherwise, that wound unintentionally; they’re all in this short story. But readers who want to see how it all plays out will need to read more of the series. It’s a cool start to a series of ordinary extraordinary adventures for girls.

Disclosure: I got it on a deal and I offer my honest review.
