Five Stars: Touching and meaningful story for middle grade girls ~ February 1, 2016 by Kat Lauterback

This is a sweet story of faith and the power of love. Claire is a young girl dealing with moving to a new town and a new school. Then her mother becomes Ill and unable to care for the family. This story will be especially meaningful to middle school girls who are facing similar family problems or helping a friend. When I was 10, my mother was ill for an extended time. Claire’s story rings very true to me. The story of a loving family striving to cope with the mother’s mental illness. Jean Ann Williams’s novel is well written and meaningful.
