WHERE I LIVE!
Meet Diana! She is fun, full of live, observant and energetic. She enjoys everything in life, from big things to small. She loves the fact that she is able to wave at her best friend everyday since their windows are facing one another. She is loved by her parents and peers.
Slowly, the laughter disappears from her house and her parents stop talking to each other the way they use to. She finds out that her parent's are not getting a divorce... however, a family situation is forcing them to change their way of living.
WHERE I LIVE by EILEEN SPINELLI and the illustrations by MATH PHELAN is written in free verse and is a bittersweet story about all things that life offers.
For grades 4th and older.
