Silver Meadows Summer

Silver Meadows Summer - Emma Otheguy

Silver Meadows Summer

Eleven-year-old Carolina moves with her family from Puerto Rico to upstate New York, where she attends camp with her cousin, finds an abandoned cottage, and reclaims parts of the life she left in Puerto Rico. "Beautiful and wise, [this] is a gem of a book."--Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor-winning author of "The Inquisitor's Tale."

Just right for fans of Pam Mu oz Ryan, this story of moving out and moving on is a touching portrayal of the experience of leaving one's home country and making new friends--sometimes where least expected.

Eleven-year-old Carolina's summer--and life as she knows it--is upended when Papi loses his job, and she and her family must move from Puerto Rico to her T a Cuca and Uncle Porter's house in upstate New York. Now Carolina must attend Silver Meadows camp, where her bossy older cousin Gabriela rules the social scene.

Just as Carolina worries she'll have to spend the entire summer in Gabriela's shadow, she makes a friend of her own in Jennifer, a fellow artist. Carolina gets another welcome surprise when she stumbles upon a long-abandoned cottage in the woods near the campsite and immediately sees its potential as a creative haven for making art. There, with Jennifer, Carolina begins to reclaim the parts of the life she loved in Puerto Rico and forget about how her relationship with Mami has changed and how distant Papi has become.

But when the future of Silver Meadows and the cottage is thrown into jeopardy, Carolina and--to everyone's surprise--Gabriela come up with a plan to save them. Will it work?

"A warm depiction of family and of standing up for what you believe in."--Kirkus
"An introspective, character-driven tale that will appeal to artists, introverts, or any child who has felt like an outsider."--SLJ
"With comforting warmth and gentle realism, this is a hopeful exploration of what home means."--The Bulletin
