Twelve-year-old Fern feels invisible. Her dad is forever planning how to boost business at the family restaurant. Her mom is constantly going off to meditate. Her sister, Sarah, who’s taking a year off after high school, is too busy finding ways not to work, and her brother Holden is totally focused on his new “friend.” And then there’s Charlie: three years old, a “surprise” baby, and the center of everything.

If it wasn’t for her friend Ran, there would be nowhere to turn. Ran is always calm, always positive. His mantra, “All will be well,” calms like nothing else. When he says it, Fern can almost believe.

But when their lives are suddenly turned upside down, Fern feels more alone than ever, and responsible for the devastating event that wrenches the family apart. All will not be well. Or at least, all will never be the same.

Review:

Amazon Best Books of the Month for Kids, May, 2012: 12-year old Fern just wants to be normal. Instead she must endure her father’s endlessly embarrassing advertising ploys to boost the family business and the invisibility that comes with being the middle child in a family of strong personalities....including her adored younger brother Charlie. While everyone seems to be too busy for Fern—her mom dotes on Charlie, her brother Holden is mysterious and absent, and her sister Sarah seems not to care—Fern is left feeling she is all alone. But when a sudden tragedy occurs, Fern’s family must learn to stick together to overcome their grief and sadness. With engaging characters and an endearing protagonist who transports the reader back to the tumult of adolescence, See You at Harry’s is the kind of book that will make you laugh, cry, and wish you could go back and read it again for the first time. --Heather Dileepan
