Book Description

Ten-year-old Lexie used to love going to the shore. For as long as she can remember, she's spent every summer there with her parents, eating hamburgers, swimming in the ocean, and combing the beach for treasure.  This summer is going to be different though. Lexie's Mom and Daddy are divorced, and for the first time Mom won't be there. To make matters worse, Daddy has a surprise—his new girlfriend, Vicky, and her two sons are coming to stay with them for a week!  Now Lexie has to share her house with perky Vicky, Vicky's moody teenage son Ben, and messy three-year-old Harris. The little beach house just doesn't seem big enough for so many people. Is there still room for Lexie?

In a voice that's sharp, funny, and sincere, Newbery Honor-winning author Audrey Couloumbis tells the story of a girl discovering that if you pay attention, sometimes you can find treasure in the most unlikely places.


From the Hardcover edition.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Starred Review, The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, June 2011:
"As she did in Jake (BCCB 12/10), Couloumbis demonstrates her skill at writing with quiet understanding and unstudied polish for younger readers. Her ability to walk through complicated emotional dynamics in kid-accessible language...is impressive, making Lexie a perceptive narrator but not requiring her to be implausibly sophisticated."


From the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked This...Cute Quick Read August 26, 2012
Format:Hardcover
I liked this book. It was cute...a good quick read. Good for ages 7 to 10. The characters are great, and though the plot isn't exactly thrilling, it has some nice lessons for kids about life. Overall, a great book!
