GETTING NEAR TO BABY

“an exquisitely-crafted story of loss, family love, and new beginnings.”  –Publisher’s Weekly

Based on the award-winning 2000 Newbery Honor Book by Audrey Couloumbis

When you’re young, the smallest changes can be epic adventures.  For Willa Jo and Little Sister, moving in with their Aunt & Uncle is enough to make their entire world strange and frightening.  But with careful thought and steadfast love (not to mention the friendship of some unlikely neighbors), there’s nothing these brave girls can’t face in this intimate story of family, forgiveness, and lawn gnomes.
