A Stitch in Time

ebook

NPR's Best Book of 2018

An orphan grapples with her unpleasant aunt and the even more unpleasant idea of moving to Boston in this poignant middle-grade debut that handles loss and renewal.

"Heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time, Donut's story is gritty, hopeful and ultimately all about the various ways that love shows up. I loved it."—Kathi Appelt, author of the Newbery Honor and National Book Award finalist novel The Underneath

"Taxidermy? What better journey to uncover the true stuff of character! A classic, indelible debut."—Rita Williams-Garcia, author of the Newbery Honor novel One Crazy Summer

Donut is an eleven-year old geography buff who keeps her taxidermied mice hidden in her late mother's hope chest. Her pops passed away, leaving her an orphan. Aunt Agnes has moved in, bringing along her lumpy oatmeal, knitting, and a plan to drag Donut off to Boston forever.

Donut stands to lose everything: her friends, her village, her home, the woods, and walks where the memories of her pops are stored up.

While Donut dodges the ache of missing her pops, she and her best friend Tiny plan how to keep her where she belongs.

A Stitch in Time by Daphne Kalmar is shot through with gorgeous, evocative language, and gets right to Donut's heart.
