I saw right away that Mr. L. had finally stocked up the toy aisle for summer-water balloons and Super Soakers, snorkel masks and plastic sunglasses. He should’ve gotten that stuff out three weeks ago, because it was already the first day of July and I was sweating worse than a pig in a roller derby. But I guess better late than never, that’s what my mom always said.

But after three chapters it was becoming pretty clear to me that Charlotte’s Web was a book about a pig. I tossed the book down on the floor. Normally I would’ve ridden my bike, but even going turtle tracks you could never be sure about stupid safari ninjas jumping out of stupid trees. So I decided to walk. I still wore my Ace bandages, though, wound up tight around my ankles.

Bernetta Wallflower is having the worst summer on record.

Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance. The Thing About Georgie. Bernetta Wallflower is having the worst summer on record. After her ex-best friend, Ashley, frames her for running a school-wide cheating ring, Bernetta can't convince anyone that she's innocent. Her parents ground her until her tonsils grow back, and she.

Umbrella Summer book. Lisa Graff's UMBRELLA SUMMER is a treasure of a middle-grade novel, and I highly recommend it. She speaks at the Indiana SCBWI event this May. I'm so looking forward to hearing her speak.

And with a lot of help from those around her-and a book about a pig, too-Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine. With winsome humor and a dash of small-town charm, Lisa Graff's third novel is a touching look at rising above grief and the healing power of community.

With winsome humor and a dash of small-town charm, Lisa Graff's third novel is a touching look at rising above grief and the healing power of community.

Annie Richards knows there are a million things to look out for—bicycle accidents, food poisoning, chicken pox, smallpox, typhoid fever, runaway zoo animals, and poison oak. That's why being careful is so important, even if it does mean giving up some of her favorite things, like bike races with her best friend, Rebecca, and hot dogs on the Fourth of July. Everyone keeps telling Annie not to worry so much, that she's just fine. But they thought her brother, Jared, was just fine too, and Jared died.

It takes a new neighbor, who looks as plain as a box of toothpicks but has some surprising secrets of her own, to make Annie realize that her plans for being careful aren't working out as well as she had hoped. And with a lot of help from those around her—and a book about a pig, too—Annie just may find a way to close her umbrella of sadness and step back into the sunshine.

With winsome humor and a dash of small-town charm, Lisa Graff's third novel is a touching look at rising above grief and the healing power of community.

Even though its intended audience is youth, I greatly enjoyed this book. The subject of death and loss is addressed in a tender yet humorous manor. I intend to read other books by this author.

Umbrella Summer by Lisa Graf is a wonderful story about a young girl who is afraid of having an accident-any kind of accident. She goes through boxes of band-aids and takes to reading a huge doctor's manuel for better diagnosing of her ailments. She has real reason to be afraid though as her older brother recently passes from an undetected heart problem and this is her way of working through her grief. This book is really well-written. Please have a box of tissues ready for last half of book!

Umbrella Summer made me realize that you have to keep your umbrella of worry down in order to feel the sunshine. You must also realize when it is time to let go of the ones who passed away. Sadly I have gone through something similar in a way , but not as intense as Annie. My great grandma passed away when she was 92. I had broken my ankle about five days before so i couldn't go to her funeral and pay my respects. She was probably one of my greatest role models because she has gone through so much and kept a positive attitude her whole life. After reading this i know i need to let my umbrella down and feel the sunshine

The kids and I really enjoyed reading this book together. It is always wonderful to see things from another person's point of view and experience through their story things that we may not have yet experienced on our own. I believe that sharing this and other stories of troubles and courage helps to teach my children empathy and compassion. I recommend this book to others.

Well written story of the journey of a child as she deals with the loss of a sibling. Her parents, as well, struggle with the loss and don't know how to help their daughter. I laughed out loud at parts in this book, but also shed tears at the low points. This is a very touching, "real life" tale of sorrow and how we find ways through it.

This was very good read. It captured a child's reaction to death very well; the confusing disorder of it all. I enjoyed the book very much.
This was a sweet book about a young girl learning to deal with unexpected loss of her brother.When the adults around her haven't.We could all learn a little from this book.
