Ryan Hart and her family are back in another installment of stories about a Black girl finding her way and her voice as she grows through change and challenges. In this book, Ryan finds herself wishing for lots of things—like for her new sister to be born healthy, for her new recipes to turn out right, for that camping trip to go better than she fears! And of course Ryan is facing these new challenges and new experiences in her classic style—with a bright outlook and plenty of spirit!
Inspired to write her own version of Ramona, Newbery Honor- and Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Renée Watson continues her delightful series.
