chasing the milky way By Erin Moulton

Erin Moulton’s newest book for middle-school (and other!) readers takes 12-year-old Lucy Peevey, her best friend Cam, and Lucy’s little sister Izzy, on a wild ride. They are planning the perfect escape from their trailer-park existence by winning scholarships at the annual BotBlock robotics contest. The plan is fraught with problems, not the least of which is the high entry fee, for which the kids secretly save up for months. And then, Lucy’s manic-depressive mother starts behaving strangely… A great book looking squarely at mental illness from the standpoint of an overly responsible pre-teen.
