First, it was a clothing boutique for pets in Pennsylvania. Then a breakfast buffet in North Carolina. Then an apple orchard in Connecticut. Now, Azalea’s dad says he’s going to drive a tour bus in Portland, Maine.
Azalea’s sick of moving. She is determined to stay in Portland and call it home. But a mysterious bandit is threatening her father’s business. Can Azalea use her new freedom as an unschooler to save the day—and her family? In Liza Kleinman’s fresh and funny debut middle-grade novel, the author deftly explores, with poise and insight, the growing unschooling movement as well as the challenges of moving to a new home, making friends, and finding room for differences within a family.
Azalea, Unschooled, by Liza Kleinman, illustrations by Brook Gideon, published on May 5. Liza is giving away five signed copies of her delightful new book. Enter below!
I remember moving my kids every couple of years for my husband’s job and worried about how it would affect them. This is so true of kids in military families, and unfortunately with the way the economy is going, parents who have to move because of their jobs. I feel this book will reach a lot of children who are experiencing the trauma of moving around alot. Thank you for writing about a sensitive subject:)
I am not sure how to enter the giveaway, but this would be a great book for my classroom. I am always looking for books with female protagonists.
This Is an awesome premise and will be a great read for me and to pass along to my friends.
