A story infused with warmth and emotion about finding something all your own while the world changes around you. 2015 BCCBBulletinBlue Ribbon Selection Determined to make some extra money, twelve-year-old Missy and her older brother Patrick get summer jobs picking blueberries at a local farm. For Missy, though, blueberry picking quickly becomes about more than just money it's the perfect distraction from the fact that her two best friends have gone off to summer camp without her and that her dad is getting remarried. Why can't everything go back to the way it used to be? Back to normal? Missy soon discovers, though, that the summer is full of secrets: the secrets to making her family feel whole again; the secrets to keeping her two best friends from changing and leaving her behind; the secrets of a local farm's blood feud; and most importantly, the secrets of blueberries.

"School Library Journal """The Secrets of Blueberries"is a new twist on growing up." "VOYA""show more
