    Lovely Shoes, The (EBK)

    by Susan Shreve

    Franny is constantly embarrassed by two things in her life. One is her right foot, which curls in from a birth defect, so she has to wear ugly, heavy orthopedic shoes. And the other is her mother Margaret: beautiful, extravagant, flamboyant mortifying, in their small Ohio town.

    Franny's first school dance is a disaster, so Margaret announces her latest crazy plan: They will travel to Italy to meet Salvatore Ferragamo, who will sculpt a pair of slippers especially for Franny. The idea is outrageous. The trip is expensive.

    And the experience changes Franny's life forever.

About This Book

The phone rang: It was Michael Jordan

Can a fat boy in a new neighborhood be a TV talk show host? Can a girl with a name like "Blister" get anyone to come to her birthday party? If your as-good-as-stepfather walks out on the family, is there any way he'd come back?

If it were up to Jonah Morrison to say how the world should be, the answer to all those questions would be "yes." This is the story of how one boy reinvents himself, and a little bit of the world with him.

Susan Shreve works her inimitable blend of magic and humor into this painfully real story of a troubled sixth-grade boy.
