New in paperback! A sweet, girl, middle-grade title about getting lost in a big family and unlikely friendship. Mother-Daughter Book Club fans rejoice!
Almost-twelve-year-old Sunday Foweler is a middle-of-the-middle child, and it's the absolute worst. Her sisters say she's too young. Her brothers say she's too old. And her parents remember the dog's name more often than they remember hers.
But standing out is hard work when you have to help repair an old library and make sure your siblings don't steal your new best friend--or ruin all your plans.
Then Sunday finds something in the library's basement that might make her so famous no one will forget her name ever again.
A Summer of Sundays is a charming, funny celebration of family and finding friendship in unexpected places.

About Lindsay Eland
Lindsay Eland knew she wanted to be a writer ever since fifth grade, when she won an honorable mention for her book "What Can You Learn From a Giflyaroo." The book received rave reviews and was highly acclaimed among her family members. Sadly, with only ten hard-bound copies produced, the book is now out of print. (Skip tumultuous adolescence when she aspired to be an actress on Broadway, a ballerina, a singer, a nurse, and a dental hygienist.) After getting hitched to a wonderful guy she met in college and having four kids in four years, she decided she didn't have enough to do, so she began to write again with the passion and determination that always marked her character.
