Description

Everyone needs their own special corner...

It’s 1969 and ten-year-old Davy is in a predicament. With two weeks remaining of the summer holidays, he’s expelled from the public pool for sneaking into the deep end and almost drowning. How will he break the news to his hard-working single mother? She’s at the diner all day, Davy has no friends, and he’s too young to stay by himself.

The answer lies in his rescuer, mysterious thirteen-year-old Ellis Wynn. Visiting her Grammy for the summer, Ellis offers to babysit Davy. She teaches him about “corners”–forgotten or neglected areas fixed up special. Together, the kids tackle several “corners” and Davy learns what it means to bring joy to others.

Davy begins to wonder, though. Why does Ellis want to be his friend? Why doesn’t she ever smile? And is Davy just one of Ellis’ “corners?”

Advance Praise

Advance praise: “Davy’s story will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will also make you thankful for your family, at least it did me. CORNERS would be a great addition to school classrooms and libraries, and also would be good for a study of the 1960s in history.” - Beverly Stowe McClure, Award-Winning author of stories for children and teens.

I'm not crying, you're crying. This book is amazing. It hits you right in the feels, but in a good way. A wonderful tale of how what seems like the simplest of things can have the greatest impact on our lives, and how sometimes, someone comes into your life, and you know they're an important piece of you.
