Description

I had a bad August. A very bad August. As bad as pickle juice on a cookie.
 
Eleanor’s beloved babysitter, Bibi, is moving away. Suddenly, the things she used to enjoy aren’t fun anymore—everything reminds her of Bibi. To make matters worse, Eleanor has a new babysitter, who just isn’t the same. But as the new school year looms ahead, so do new beginnings. And Eleanor is about to learn some special things about herself, friendship, and the bittersweet process of growing up.
