“This lovely celebration of quirky individualism applauds both creativity and science.”
Try though she might, ten-year-old Lucy Castor can’t seem to stop the world around her from changing in this charming and funny novel by Natasha Lowe in the tradition of the Penderwicks series.
Lucy’s life is perfect and she doesn’t want to change a thing. With everyone growing up around her, Lucy just wants everything to just stay the way it is. Then she discovers her mother is having another baby and Lucy is sure that her parents don’t want her anymore. Classic, heartwarming, and quirky, this cozy story is about holding onto the magic of childhood.
