Hope Is A Ferris Wheel By Robin Herrera

Hope Is A Ferris Wheel
By Robin Herrera

Star Mackie or as everyone calls her, Star "Trashy", is a naive, mullet (layered-cut) wearing, 5th grader who lives in Treasure Trailers trailer park. She's looking for a club to start, but not like her sister Winter's writing club that got her expelled from school. Her Trailer Park Club was a flop, but now she's moved on to form The Emily Dickinson Club. Star is focused on her club, but notices Winter getting more and more withdrawn and argumentative with their single mom. Winter even suggests a day trip to visit their Dad who has no part in the girls' lives. During that fateful trip, Star learns two things that will forever change her life. What does Star's Dad tell her and why did Winter have to see him now? What happens with The Emily Dickinson Club? Find out all of this and more when you read "Hope Is A Ferris Wheel" by Robin Herrera available March 2014.
