A Summer of Sundays
A sweet middle-grade title about getting lost in a big family and unlikely friendship.
Almost-twelve-year-old Sunday Fowler is a middle-of-the-middle child, and it’s the absolute worst. Her sisters say she’s too young. Her brothers say she’s too old. And her parents remember the dog’s name more often than they remember hers. But standing out is hard work when you have to help repair an old library and make sure your siblings don’t steal your new best friend—or ruin all your plans. Then Sunday finds something in the library’s basement that might make her so famous no one will forget her name ever again. But revealing her finding means stirring up secrets that some people in the town hoped to keep buried. Sunday must decide if some things—loyalty, trust, friendship—are worth more than her name in the headlines. A Summer of Sundays is a charming, funny celebration of family and finding friendship in unexpected places.
