When Melissa's father left her without a word of explanation or even a good-bye, Melissa was forced to leave their Manhattan apartment and the hustle and bustle and beautiful places of the great metropolis. She was packed off to move in with Aunt Katherine, who lived in Campbell's Corners, Ontario. It was a dot in the middle of nowhere on the Canadian map. Worse, Aunt Katherine didn't want her. That seemed clear from a letter to her father that Melissa found. "Sending Melissa to me is not a good idea. How could she be welcomed under the circumstances?" her Aunt had written. But, what were the "circumstances," and, knowing them, why did her father insist on sending her to the tiny town where she would not be liked? For seventh-grader Melissa, life was becoming as full of problems and secrets as a soap opera. Author Glenna Sloan keeps the action and the mystery moving while clearly defining the underpinnings of friendship and family relationships: caring, communicating, valuing and being supportive. Professor and Chair in the Department of Elementary Education at Queens College, New York, Dr. Sloan directs and teaches in the Children's Literature Specialization within the Master's Program. She is a recognized author in academia, an active committeewoman and board member of the National Council Teachers of English, and on the Board of Directors of the Children's Literature Association of the Modern Language Association. Glenna Sloan has won the International Reading Association's 2001 Arbuthnot Award for an outstanding teacher of children's and young people's literature. She is also the author of the young adult novel, Stealing Time, which was a Kansas State Reading Circle Selection1999-2000.
