A Big-Hearted Middle Grade Debut, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Jamie Sumner’s work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other publications. She will discuss and sign Roll with It ($17.99 Atheneum Books for Young Readers). In the tradition of Wonder and Out of My Mind, this big-hearted middle grade debut tells the story of an irrepressible girl with cerebral palsy whose life takes an unexpected turn when she moves to a new town.
When Ellie and her mom move so they can help take care of her ailing grandpa, Ellie has to start all over again in a new town at a new school. Except she’s not just the new kid—she’s the new kid in the wheelchair who lives in the trailer park on the wrong side of town. It all feels like one challenge too many, until Ellie starts to make her first-ever friends. Now she just has to convince her mom that this town might just be the best thing that ever happened to them!
