It is no wonder that so many folks are drawn to this book. We all have hard things in our lives and can relate to Maddie's family. Maddie's imagination and her mustache collection are amazing tools for her and those around her. What a beautiful picture of someone using their gifts to make lives better. This would make a fantastic classroom read aloud for middle grade students. They will learn about coping with hard times like illnesses and friend conflicts and can apply that to the difficulties in their lives.

I am thrilled that this title is on the Mark Twain Nominee list for 2019. Young patrons at my library can join me for a discussion of this book and "Halfway Normal" by Barbara Dee on Wednesday, June 26. We have grouped these two titles under the heading "Persisting" and hope many will join us talking, games and more!
