It's Only Temporary
Audience: 5th Grade - 7th Grade
Skye McPhee faces a 'temporary' situation when she is sent to live with her kooky grandmother in California after her brother has a severe automobile accident. Skye struggles at first to adjust, but art classes, new friends, and reconnecting with her brother through their emails all help her pass the time until she can return home to New Mexico. The book is illustrated with sketches, lists, etc. taken from Skye's journal, giving the book a diarylike feel even though the story is written in the third person.
