Her sister Marie adapts to the changes easily but Ann is not so lucky. Her new teacher has an impossible name to remember and can scare the plaster off the ceiling. After a series of failed attempts at fitting in, Ann discovers that just being herself is the key. New is sometimes sad, often funny but always familiar.

  • Thank you for writing a book on this topic! We had a family move and I think addressing this issue through a fiction book would be tremendously helpful.
