Overview
Whether she likes it or not, ten-year-old Piper Lee DeLuna is about to get a new family. Four years after the plane Piper's daddy was piloting disappeared, her mama is remarrying. The way Piper sees it, Mama's being plain disloyal. Besides, who'd want to get stuck with a prison guard for a stepdad and that weenie, Ginger, for a stepsister? But when Piper Lee hatches a foolproof plan to get the wedding called off, it quickly spirals out of control. And by the time Piper realizes what she's done--and just how much she really cares about her new family--it might be too late. Told in Piper Lee's irresistible Southern voice, A Smidgen of Sky is about new families and new beginnings.

Ten-year-old Piper Lee learns to open her heart to a new life after the loss of her father in this quaint Southern-flavored debut novel. It's been four years since the plane Piper's father was flying near their Georgia town disappeared, but she still holds hope that he could be found. Her mother, meanwhile, is planning to marry a man named Ben, netting Piper a new stepfather and an annoying stepsister named Ginger—change that makes Piper feel unsettled and disloyal to her father. When Piper's plans to derail the wedding and find her father go terribly wrong, she creates more heartache than she could have imagined. Winget's poignantly flawed characters and honest emotional circumstances draw readers into a story that feels like it's set in a simpler time and place—where kids ride bikes to the library, attend vintage car shows, and parents spout phrases like "cute as a speckled pup." Though a subplot involving the Internet and a potential child molester has an unsatisfying conclusion, Winget provides a cozy, family-centric read with a well-deserved happy ending. Ages 9–12. Agent: Mary Kole, Movable Type Management. (Nov.)
