Description

Last spring, Pansy chickened out on going to spring break camp, even though she'd promised her best friend, Anna, she'd go. It was just like when they went to get their hair cut for Locks of Love; only one of them walked out with a new hairstyle, and it wasn't Pansy. But Pansy never got the chance to make it up to Anna. While at camp, Anna contracted meningitis and a dangerously high fever, and she hasn't been the same since. Now all Pansy wants is her best friend back—not the silent girl in the wheelchair who has to go to a special school and who can't do all the things Pansy used to chicken out of doing. So when Pansy discovers that Anna is getting a surgery that might cure her, Pansy realizes this is her chance—she'll become the friend she always should have been. She'll become the best friend Anna's ever had—even if it means taking risks, trying new things (like those scary roller skates), and running herself ragged in the process.Pansy's chasing extraordinary, hoping she reaches it in time for her friend's triumphant return. But what lies at the end of Pansy's journey might not be exactly what she had expected—or wanted.Extraordinary is a heartfelt, occasionally funny, coming-of-age middle grade novel by debut author Miriam Spitzer Franklin. It's sure to appeal to fans of Cynthia Lord's Rules and will inspire young friends to cherish the times they spend together. Every day should be lived like it's extraordinary.
