Water Balloon

22 Jun

This coming of age novel by Audrey Vernick is a great summer read for middle school girls!  When Marley’s parents decide to get separated, she finds herself spending the summer with her dad in a new house, a summer babysitting job she doesn’t want, and friends who seem too busy for her.  Then a cute next-door neighbor befriends Marley and helps her through the summer filled with changes she can’t quite handle by herself!

I really enjoyed this easy read that will be sure to resonate with middle school girls everywhere.  Friends that change, families that never seem normal enough, and boys that might be more than friends are things that every middle school girl deals with and this book is a great read!

With a summer theme, this is a great story to pick up for a week at the beach, an afternoon at the pool, or a water balloon blitz attack (just keep the book dry!)
