When 10 year-old Allie learns that her family will be moving from a two-family home to their very own house, she is hesitant until she finds out they will be living on a street with the magical name of Strawberry Hill. That changes everything! The new house though, is in Stamford, Conneticut, far from her current home in New Haven. Allie's father is lucky to find the new job in Stamford. Jobs are hard to get during The Great Depression.
But strawberries are not the only things Allie will have to look for in her new neighborhood. As Allie struggles to find a new "best friend" and adjust to all of the changes she faces, she takes readers on her journey to make Strawberry Hill feel like home.
Join us on Thursday, June 26th at 6:30 in the evening to discuss Strawberry Hill and enjoy some snacks.
