A perfect summer read set in a mysterious artists' estate in the idyllic Midwestern countryside

It's the summer before seventh grade, and twelve-year-old Raine O'Rourke's mother takes a sudden job at Sparrow Road--a dilapidated mansion that houses a group of eccentric artists. While Raine's mother works as the cook and housekeeper, Raine is left to figure out why she and her mother have really come to Sparrow Road. Secrets seem to be everywhere, but it's an unexpected secret from Raine's own life--the reason she's come to Sparrow Road--that changes her forever.

An affecting and beautifully written story of family and forgiveness, Sparrow Road is a perfect pick for the middle-grade set.


"Shelia O'Connor's book about the importance of love, loyalty and dreams, charmed me...Sparrow Road is quite wonderful and I recommend it highly." -Karen Cushman, author of the Newbery-winning The Midwife's Apprentice and the Newbery Honor book Catherine, Called Birdy
