'Bittersweet Summer' by Anne Warren Smith

Book description:

It's a strange summer for Katie Jordan.
Her neighbor Claire is scheming again.
Her best friend is away.
Her dad says they might have to move.
And on top of everything, her mom's country music show is coming to town.

This funny, tender novel about friendships, family, and changing lives is a sequel to Turkey Monster Thanksgiving and Tails of Spring Break. 


This book focuses on the difficulties of losing one's mom, for a couple of different reasons. Katie Jordan and her friend are looking for a new mother. Girls who are missing their mother for a variety of reasons may be able to relate. It can be a tough topic, but is a good read for kids in upper elementary school.
