Living on the roof to escape her crazy family works...until reality pulls Joyce back to the ground
Joyce is desperate to get out of the room she shares with her older sister. All she wants is some peace and quiet, not the kind that fills the space left by her missing brother and tastes like butterscotch gone sour, the kind where you can breathe deep and see the stars.
So she moves to the roof. Up there it's nothing but blue sky. Blue sky and....another roof dweller? Joyce soon discovers she's not the only one who's been driven to rooftop living. With the help of a pair of binoculars, a sketch pad, and a pen, Joyce makes an unexpected friend and sets in motion a summer she'll never forget.
Perfect for anyone looking for books:for 9-12 year old girls and give as a gift to a tween in their life!to add to their homeschool materials.

Review quote

"When the unthinkable happens, no one can make things right in Joyce's life. Her best option? To run away. As she finds her voice and true freedom, her wit and unique view will make you LOL - well when you aren't crying." - Girls' Life Magazine
