Description of this Book

"Making people laugh is what Summer does best. It's how she fits in. And is it any wonder with a family like hers? Top of the list of crazies is Pop, her stingy grandfather, who whips up possum stews and turns chicken scraps into the worst school lunches ever. So why does Juanita suddenly want to be her friend? Juanita's not her type, she has real sandwiches in her lunchbox, and does nice things like saving greyhounds and sticking up for people." First person recount.

Author's Bio

With a name like Julie Lamb you won't be surprised to learn this author has lived in the New Zealand countryside for most of her life. Also no surprise that Julie's first novel is about a girl living on a farm with her grandfather. Julie has always spent a lot of time thinking up stories in her head, but she properly started writing when her children Louis and Bella were growing up in Greytown and wanted more stories about crazy, funny kids. That's how a girl called Summer Rain was born. Julie believes there is more to the world than what we see in front of us. She says it's a kind of magic, which works itself out in all sorts of ways. Julie tries to capture that magic in her stories, and one day hopes to grow a set of wings, even if only on the inside.
