A place of unique people, memories of her mom, happy summers,everything; until that unforgettable summer where a fox, some letters and some mysteries come to light. Home takes on new meaning in this sweet, moving and tender story.”

Description

Fox Street was a dead end. In Mo Wren's opinion, this was only one of many wonderful, distinguishing things about it.

Mo lives on Fox Street with her dad and little sister, the Wild Child. Their house is in the middle of the blockright where a heart would be, if the street were a person. Fox Street has everything: a piano player, a fix-it man, the city's best burrito makers, a woman who cuts Mo's hair just right, not to mention a certain boy who wants to teach her how to skateboard. There's even a mean, spooky old lady, if ringing doorbells and running away, or leaving dead mice in mailboxes, is your idea of fun. Summers are Mo's favorite time, because her best friend, Mercedes, comes to stay.

Most important, though, Fox Street is where all Mo's memories of her mother live. The idea of anything changing on Fox Street is unimaginableuntil it isn't.

This is the story of one unforgettable summera summer of alarming letters, mysterious errands, and surprising revelationsand how a tuft of bright red fur gives Mo the courage she needs.
