Ida B...and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World

by Katherine Hannigan

In Wisconsin, fourth-grader Ida B spends happy hours being home-schooled and playing in her family's apple orchard, until her mother begins treatment for breast cancer and her parents must sell part of the orchard and send her to public school.

Ida B is a fourth grader like no other, who's living a life like no other, with a voice like no other, and a family like no other. How does Ida B cope when outside forces attempt to derail her, her family, and her future? She just wants her life to go back to the way it was. What Ida B needs is the perfect plan to fix things.
