By Mary Ann Hoberman
National Book Award winner Mary Ann Hoberman introduces readers to Allie, a feisty character loosely based on Mary Ann herself, in this debut novel
When Allie learns that her family will be moving from their apartment in the city to their own home in the country, she's hesitant until she finds out they will be living on a street with the magical name of Strawberry Hill. That changes everything! From Allie's discovery of a nearby farm, to her struggle to reconcile her feelings about 'best friends', Mary Ann Hoberman allows readers to experience the trials and tribulations of small town life during the Depression, as seen through the eyes of a precocious, loveable ten year-old.
Strawberry Hill is a character-driven, coming of age story that at its heart is a celebration of friendship and family. Reminiscent of classic stories with feisty heroines like Anne of Green Gables and based loosely on the author's own life experiences, Strawberry Hill will appeal to fans of nostalgic novels like The Penderwicks, Year of the Dog and Blow Out the Moon.
Mary Ann Hoberman is the author of the classic A House is a House For Me, which won a National Book Award as well as the bestselling Sing-Along Stories series.
