"Ida loves her life. She loves her family's orchard, she loves talking to her favorite trees, she loves being creative, and she loves being homeschooled. But when her mother gets sick, a lot of things have to change. Filled with anger, Ida decides to harden her heart so she can't be hurt again... ever.This beautifully written, moving book will speak to anyone who has ever struggled with the idea of change."— Meghan G.
Ida B. Applewood believes there is never enough time for fun.
That's why she's so happy to be homeschooled and to spend every free second outside with the trees and the brook.
Then some not-so-great things happen in her world. Ida B has to go back to that Place of Slow but Sure Body-Cramping, Mind-Numbing, Fun-Killing Torture school. She feels her heart getting smaller and smaller and hardening into a sharp, black stone.
How can things go from righter than right to a million miles beyond wrong? Can Ida B put together a plan to get things back to just-about perfect again?
