Master storyteller Jerry Spinelli has written a dizzingly inventive fable of growing up and letting go, of leaving childhood and its imagination play behind for the more dazzling adventures of adolescence, and of learning to accept not only the sunny part of day, but the unwelcome arrival of night, as well.
Tara's voice can be heard on hundreds of radio and TV commercials, audiobooks, video games, and cartoons. Tara has narrated dozens of audiobooks, including the series "Sammy Keyes" and Katy Kelly's "Allie Finkle." She has received several Earphone awards from Audiofile Magazine and was nominated for an Audie award for the multicast performance of "Lemony Snicket: Book 1," starring Tim Curry. For 2 years, Tara was the on-camera host of Cartoon Network's weekly Friday night lineup, appropriately titled "Fridays."
Starred Review, School Library Journal, January 1, 2013:
“This unforgettable coming-of-age story will resonate with tween readers and take its rightful place beside the author’s Maniac Magee and Louis Sachar’s Holes.”
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2012:
“A masterful, bittersweet recognition of coming-of-age.”
