Synopsis: Skate Tate has a good life. She has close friends, a loving family, and her beloved Great Uncle Mort (GUM for short) who lives every day as if it were an adventure. Skate would like things to stay just the way they are. But life doesn’t work that way. For one thing, Skate has to figure out the strange new world of Biddle Middle, where eighth graders rule the roost, old friendships start to change, and a lowly sixth-grader has to struggle to make a place for herself. But other, more painful changes, are also in store for the Tates, and the story of how this close knit family responds to sudden tragedy will move and delight listeners everywhere. Told with her trademark wit and wisdom, filled with big laughs and unexpected tears, Paula Danziger’s newest novel is one of her finest achievements.
Buckle your seat belt for a heartwarming road trip from one of the most beloved children's book authors of all time.
Fifth-grader Skate Tate hates change. Her new school is bigger, her classes are harder, and her close friends aren't as close as they used to be.
Only her fearless Great Uncle Mort can help her cope. When tragedy strikes, he sends Skate and her family on a road trip, with Skate taking down everything that happens in her beloved scrapbooks. She thinks her family will hit the road and come back without changing. But what she doesn't know is that this is one car trip that's going to change their lives forever.
