A Sliver of Sun
“Piper Lee is an instantly likable, flawed character with a good heart. Hand this one to kids who want realistic fiction with … a dash of excitement.-School Library Journal (of A Smidgen of Sky)Ever since Mama and Ben got married, 10-year-old Piper Lee’s new family is like a crisp, hardback book, stiff and hard to crack open. Piper Lee never gets to be alone with Mama anymore, her annoying stepsister Ginger is always right there wherever she goes, and she knows she’s ruined any chance Ben will scoop her up and make her laugh like he does with Ginger, even though she secretly wishes he would.
So when Mama announces she’s pregnant with Ben’s baby, Piper Lee is outraged. Not only will she have to share Mama with yet another person, but she’s also going to be the only kid in the family not related to Ben. Before the baby arrives, Piper Lee will need to show Ben she’s worth liking, maybe even worth loving, otherwise she’ll be an outsider in Mama and Ben’s new family … maybe forever. By the award-winning author of A SMIDGEN OF SKY (an IndieBound Fall 2012 ABC New Voices Pick), A SLIVER OF SUN is the hilarious, warm-hearted, and piercingly honest story of a brand new family and the misunderstandings, betrayals, and triumphs that will either knit them together or tear them apart. “Thanks, Dianna, for writing such a powerful middle grade novel. Folks, watch out for this one!”-Michael Gilmartin, Middle Grade Mafioso (of A Smidgen of Sky)
