Mo lives on Fox Street with her dad and little sister, the Wild Child. Their house is in the middle of the block - right where a heart would be, if the street were a person. Fox Street has everything: a piano player, a fix-it man, the city's best burrito makers, a woman who cuts Mo's hair just right, not to mention a certain boy who wants to teach her how to skateboard. There's even a mean, spooky old lady, if ringing doorbells and running away, or leaving dead mice in mailboxes, is your idea of fun. Summers are Mo's favorite time, because her best friend, Mercedes, comes to stay.

Most important, though, Fox Street is where all Mo's memories of her mother live. The idea of anything changing on Fox Street is unimaginable - until it isn't.

This is the story of one unforgettable summer - a summer of alarming letters, mysterious errands, and surprising revelations - and how a tuft of bright red fur gives Mo the courage she needs.

Listener Opinions

    " I love love love this book. The writing is really amazing, and I am going to be busy looking up this author to see if she's written other things. The way the characters are described through the writing, the settings, and the relationships of the characters is all so very vivid. I absolutely recommend this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 2/12/2014

    " The kind of sweet middle-grade book that makes librarians happy. Mo lives on a quirky street with her quirky family and everything is sweet and quirky until real-estate developers try to buy their house. Quiet and heartwarming, with not a lot of action but well-developed characters and pretty writing. "

    " You might think that not much happens on the street where you live, but for Mo her street -- Fox Street -- is the center of the universe. It has everything including a piano player, a fix-it man, a spooky lady, a perfect hair-cutter, and a boy who likes her. Things get better in the summer when her best friend comes to stay with her grandmother who also lives on Fox Street. But everything is starting to change and Mo doesn't like that at all. This is a lovely book about the strength of friendship, community, and family. It doesn't hit you over the hit with a message but gently opens the door to a very special place and the people who live there. "

    " One Sentence Review: I know folks really liked this one, but for me I think I needed the characters to be just a bit more sympathetic and for the stakes to be higher. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charty | 1/28/2014

    " Very well done and enjoyable. My last book of 2010. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/28/2014

    " An ARC provided by a local Ohio author. Loved the setting of Cleveland and I really liked the characters; not a once-size-fits-all type of neighborhood. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mr. Steve | 1/15/2014

    " This book's premise was really boring to me and the book itself was just as boring. I must have missed something because I know some people really like this book but it wasn't for me and it would be tough to booktalk. "

    " 3 1/2 stars. There were things I really liked about this book, and overall I did like it, but it just seemed to go on forever and never really held my attention. I would love to get a kid's take on this book. "
