Paris has just come for piano lessons, not chopped-liver sandwiches or French lessons or free advice. But when old Mrs. Rosen gives her a little bit more than she can handle, it might be just what Paris needs in order to understand the bully in her brother’s life . . . and the bullies of the world.
This companion novel to the award-winning Sahara Special is an affecting look at what it means to be your brother’s keeper, and at how we hold on to hope when the world is more than we can handle. (Rose-colored glasses optional.)
