Summary

Meg’s dreams seem to predict the future—but can she make a better future for herself? “Filled with sensitivity and warmth” (Children’s Book Review Service). “It was crazy to have dreams that came true. If you talked about them, it’d upset the people you loved and make them angry. Meg had learned something bad about herself, an ugly secret.” And so she decided to keep the dreams to herself, writing them down in a special notebook. Sometimes her dreams were pleasant, but other times they were disturbing—especially the one about the cave with the blue light.   When Meg’s worst dreams begin to come true, she’s convinced they bring bad luck. Why else would her father move out to “find himself” or her best friend desert her for a rowdy crowd of older kids? Meg’s grandmother and a wonderful new neighbor finally help her realize that her “secret window” into the future can bring good luck, if understood properly.

Ziggy and his sister, Moon, want answers, but nobody around can give them.Once Ziggy gets it in his head that clues to his mother's disappearance may be found in a nearby cave, there's no stopping him from going there. Along with Moon, Alice, and his best friend, Corso, he sets out on a mind-bending adventure where he'll discover his story is tied to all the stories of the Cherokees that have come before him.Ziggy might not have any control over the past -- but if he learns the lessons of the storytellers, he might be able to better shape his future and find the friends he needs.

    It was because of the Alzheimer’s, which is like a big bully that takes stuff that doesn’t belong to them and won’t give it back. Georgie has no idea what to expect when she, Mama, and Peaches are plopped down in the middle of small-town USA—aka Bogalusa, Louisiana—where Mama grew up and Great-aunt Vie needs constant care. Georgie wants to help out at the once-famous family diner that served celebrities like the Jackson 5 and the Supremes, but everyone is too busy to show her the ropes, and Mama is treating her like a baby, not letting her leave her sight. When she finally gets permission to leave on her own, Georgie makes friends with Markie—a foster kid who’d been under Aunt Elvie’s care—who has a limb difference and a huge attitude. Then Markie asks Georgie to help her find her mom, and suddenly the summer has a real purpose. As Georgie’s and Markie’s histories begin to entwine, Georgie becomes more desperate to find the truth, and she may even find a way to right past wrongs and help Aunt Vie and Markie out after all. From the critically acclaimed author of Love Like Sky comes a novel about holding on to family identity, and memories in post-Katrina Louisiana.

    Ballet Cat and her cousin Goat are preparing a show for Grandma. Each is trying to outdo the other--Ballet Cat with an elaborate dance routine (of course), and Goat with his amazing (amazingly lame, that is) magic tricks. Neither act goes off quite as planned, but it doesn't matter . . . because Grandma falls asleep during the performance! Oh well, at least Ballet Cat and Goat learn how to cooperate. (But Ballet Cat cooperates better!)
