Mo Wren was born on the kitchen table in her home on Fox Street. Ten years later Fox Street is still her world. She can't imagine living anywhere else.

With five houses on either side, Fox Street is bordered on one end by Paradise Avenue and on the other by a wooded ravine called the Green Kingdom. The Green Kingdom is one of the best things about Fox Street. Then there are the neighbors. There's a piano player, a teacher, the best burrito makers in the city, a woman who works in a funeral home, and a man who fixes things, just to name a few. Everything you need is right there on Fox Street.

To Mo's dismay, things are changing on Fox Street. Developers are trying to buy up the houses on their little street and her dad is considering taking their offer. He dreams of owning a family bar where people can hang out and get a quick meal from the grill. Mo wants that for him, but she can't imagine that he'd sell their home to make it happen.

Other things are changing, too. Mo's best friend Mercedes visits her grandmother every summer, but this is her last summer. Her grandmother is sick and her daughter and Mercedes' new stepfather want her to move to Cincinnati and live with them.

This book is a winner. Mo Wren and Fox Street are sure to find a place is your heart.
