The voice in POSSUM SUMMER captivates with its authenticity and middle graders will learn a lot about life on the farm here. The novel explores responsibility, loss and family relationships in a sensitive and heartbreaking way. It also made me want to carry around a possum close to my chest inside a sports bra (like P does). Be aware - there is quite a bit of death involved, but that is the way of nature after all.
POSSUM SUMMER is available now. Find out more about it at the author's website.
