Sunny Side Up

Sunny Side Up

What happens when your perfect life turns upside down? That’s what preteen Sunny (short for Sunday) Hathaway has to figure out when she finds herself in a state of upheaval one fateful summer. Sunny, a self-described introvert, only child, and entrepreneur, does not cope well with change, and she’s certainly getting more than her share lately. All of a sudden, her peaceful Australian beachside existence is disrupted by a series of anxiety-inducing events: her mother’s boyfriend and his children are moving in, her father and step-mother are welcoming a new baby, her best friend Claud is suddenly skipping out on their pizza business (Pizza A Go Girl) to hang out with a no-good boy, and her long-estranged grandmother Carmelene has contacted her and wants to meet. What’s a girl to do? In Sunny’s case, she learns to roll with it. Marion Roberts offers up a charming tale of family and forgiveness in her debut novel, and fans of the Georgia Nicholson series will likely to enjoy cheery Sunny too. Ages 9-13 224 pages.

Recommended by Molly Crumbley, Librarian.
