Description

At breakfast, I sit at the table and work on three things:
1. A bowl of Rice Krispies with sliced banana on top
2. My courage
3. How exactly to tell Mom I'm moving to the roof.

Joyce is desperate to get out of the room she shares with her older sister. Her solution? She moves to the roof. Up there it's nothing but blue sky and...another roof dweller? With the help of a pair of binoculars, a sketch pad, and a pen, Joyce soon makes an unexpected friend and sets in motion a summer she'll never forget.

Praise for Jelly Bean Summer:
"Joyce's wit and unique view will make you LOL -- well when you aren't crying." --Girls Life Magazine
