Annotation

National Book Award winner Mary Ann Hoberman introduces readers to Allie, a feisty character loosely based on Mary Ann herself, in this debut novel

Publisher Description

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.

Review

Praise for Strawberry Hill:A New York Times Editor's Choice* "Highly evocative... With story lines that are simple but never simplistic and perfectly crafted chapters in which the ordinary has the opportunity to become special." - Booklist (starred review)"[Hoberman] knows how to bring detail and language into just the right balance...to pull you into the story." - New York Times "Rich details bring the period to life...This is a gentle story with the sensibility of a novel written in an earlier time." - School Library Journal"Allie's plight will be utterly relatable to contemporary readers and the resolution is both satisfying and realistic." - Publishers Weekly
