Staff Reviews

Twelve-year-old June really wants to win the Pie Competition, but coming to terms with her mother’s civil union to Eva is the real challenge. (8-12)

— From Coming of Age


Twelve-year-old June Farrell is sure of one thing--she's great at making pies--and she plans to prove it by winning a blue ribbon in the Champlain Valley Fair pie competition. But a backlash against Vermont's civil union law threatens her family's security and their business. Even when faced with bullying, June won't give up on winning the blue ribbon; more importantly, she won't give up on her family.

Praise For…

"My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer is like its protagonist, full to bursting with sweetness and summer light. . .When things begin to look bleak and scary, you just know June has the grit and sunshine to pull through." —Tim Wynne-Jones, award-winning author

"Mix a pitch-perfect narrator with serious themes (but don’t set it aside to cool) and you have My Mixed-Up Berry Blue Summer. Tart in places and sweet in others, Ms. Gennari’s debut novel is satisfying in every way."—Ron Koertge, author of Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs
