This book is about a girl named June Delancey. June has anxiety, which makes it difficult for her to do things. She also has a habit of pulling out her hair, so she shaved her head. Her mom works at the library, and since her mom is a single mom, June goes there too. She meets a kid named Homer and an old man named Lucas. Together, they make a garden that everyone can enjoy. Unfortunately for June, the head librarian, Mrs. Tandy, will not tolerate it. After some time in court, June wins and gets to keep the garden. The garden also has a plaque with June’s name to honor her.
I liked this book because it shows what people with anxiety may be dealing with, and why you can’t judge someone by looking at them,
