Reaching for the Sun by Tracie Vaughn Zimmer

This gem of a story, written in free-verse, follows four seasons of the narrator, Josie's, life as she comes of age on a family farm with her grandmother, single mom, and new friend, Jordan.

Each faces challenges Josie has cerebral palsy but they come through them together, strengthened by familial love, friendship, and the rejuvenating power of nature.

This is a heartfelt story for all ages.
