Fox Street was a dead end.
In Mo Wren’s opinion, this was only one of many wonderful things about it. Mo’s lived her whole life on Fox Street and can’t imagine anything ever changing—until one unforgettable summer of alarming letters, mysterious errands, and surprising discoveries. . . .
Springstubb effectively turns the neighborhood into a character in its own right, one that’s loving and protective. Mo’s voice is original, though it has tinctures of Scout and Harriet. What happened on Fox Street? Love, belief and caring.
Springstubb creates a richly human and believable story of the conflicts of growing up and a well-paced, interesting plot with plenty of surprises that readers should find pleasurable and satisfying
