Description

For Ruby Pepperdine, the " center of everything" is on the rooftop of Pepperdine Motors in her donut-obsessed town of Bunning, New Hampshire, stargazing from the circle of her grandmother Gigi' s hug. That' s how everything is supposed to be-- until Ruby messes up and things spin out of control. But she has one last hope. It all depends on what happens on Bunning Day, when the entire town will hear Ruby read her winning essay. And it depends on her twelfth birthday wish-- unless she messes that up too. Can Ruby' s wish set everything straight in her topsy-turvy world?

Professional reviews

"Narrator Suzy Jackson offers a sparkling portrayal of 12-year-old Ruby Pepperdine. Ruby is upset about events surrounding her grandmother, GigiÕs, recent death, especially their last conversation. As a result, Ruby becomes even more preoccupied with rituals and superstitions as she hones her intuitive skills so that she can finally understand what Gigi was trying to tell her. JacksonÕs youthful voice is perfect for the voices of Ruby and her diverse group of friends. As Gigi, she sounds appropriately elderly and desperate to make sure her gifts have been passed on to her granddaugher. While JacksonÕs lively pacing conveys RubyÕs inquisitive and enthusiastic nature, she modulates both her tone and pace dramatically to reveal RubyÕs introspective side in this tender story.
