Mick Harte Was Here

Author Barbara Park is probably best known for her incredibly popular, New York Times bestselling series Junie B. Jones, but she is also the author of numerous award-winning and bestselling novels for older readers as well—including the middle grade hit Mick Harte Was Here. After Phoebe’s brother Mick dies in a bicycle accident, she struggles to understand how someone so well-loved and full of life could so suddenly be gone. Readers will empathize with Phoebe’s character and ultimately be moved by her ability, even in the face of such tragedy, to find hope and promise in the life around her.
