From Newbery Award–winning author Patricia MacLachlan
comes a lyrical coming-of-age story about finding your
own voice while learning to understand the people you
love the most.
Sylvie Bloom wants to find something new and exciting
this summer—at least more exciting than the cows, goats,
and chickens on her family’s farm that she’s become
accustomed to. Luckily, Sylvie’s teacher Mrs. Ludolf has
the perfect idea. Sylvie can take over her husband
Sheriff Ludolf’s column in the newspaper for the summer,
reporting on all the important events that happen in
their small Wyoming town. Sylvie is thrilled to have a
new challenge, but she’s not sure she’ll actually see
anything amazing. At least nothing like the things her
mother saw when she traveled the world as a famous opera
Sylvie can’t figure out why her mother would give up
singing in front of thousands of people. Have she and her
brother Nate been holding her mother back? And when her
mother’s old duet partner James Grayson writes that he’s
coming to perform nearby, will she be tempted to return
to the stage, without them?
