Written in elegant prose, this summertime story delicately approaches the topic of change. When a bookstore opens in Flora's small town, she wonders what impacts that small change might have. She's not afraid to ask big questions, and this book faces each question directly with elegant grace.
From Newbery Medalist Cynthia Rylant comes the sweet and resonant follow-up to the critically acclaimed Rosetown, continuing the story of nine-year-old Flora Smallwood’s life in quiet Rosetown, Indiana.
It is August in Rosetown, Indiana.
Ten-year-old Flora is having a calm and busy summer filled with old friends and new projects, dear pets, and, of course, many hours at her favorite place: Wings and a Chair Used Books. It is her constant and her comfort.
But change may be ahead for Wings and a Chair, and Flora is uneasy about what it will bring.
