Mick Harte Was Here.
An grant winning, awful youthful center review novel from Barbara Park—the #1 New York Times top of the line creator of the Junie B. Jones arrangement—without flaw for perusers of Frindle, Love That Dog, The Lemonade War, and other exemplary youthful center review favorites.
Kids should die.
Phoebe’s sibling, Mick, was one of the most clever, coolest children you’d ever meet—the child who made you snicker until the point when your stomach hurt, regardless of whether you were frantic at him. The child who cracked his and Phoebe’s mother out by putting an earthenware eye in a defrosted chicken; who went trap or-regarding as Thomas Crapper, the innovator of the current flush latrine; who completed a wild solo move before the whole school. He was the child you’d need to be companions with. So how might he be no more? What’s more, by what means will Phoebe’s family make due without him?
