Gr. 3^-5. When Ma decides that they will spend the summer in a remote mountain cabin, 10-year-old Katy Williams is unhappy. Her mother has big plans to write a novel; Katy is sure she will be bored because there will be no one to play with. Things change for the better when Katy meets redheaded Lena May, a boisterous girl who convinces Katy to try all sorts of new adventures. Together the two watch the birth of kittens, attend a funeral with howling dogs, capture a runaway pig, and seek medical help for Lena's grandmother. Turner addresses issues of friendship, preteen insecurities, and the mysteries of love in this engaging, often funny novel. The dichotomy between the ever-cautious Katy and her carefree and outgoing friend is particularly well drawn, and timid young readers will appreciate Turner's notion that bravery comes in many forms. Kay Weisman
