What Happened on Fox Street

By Tricia Springstubb
Rating: 4 1/4 stars

Mo has spent her entire life on Fox Street; she was even born on it.  And she loves the comfort of knowing every house, every neighbor.  She even keeps looking for a real fox in the wilderness at the end of the street.  But then this summer, everything seems to change.  Her best friend Mercedes comes to visit like always to stay with her grandmother, and she reveals her parents might make Da move back to the city with them.  Then when some developers seem interested in buying property on the street, Mo worries her father might take their money and buy that restaurant he's always wanted.  Then grumpy Mrs. Steinbott suddenly starts talking to Mo, wanting her to bring gifts to Mercey.  Why would she do that?  And Mo's little wild sister, Dottie, seems too much for Mo to have to look after with everything else going on.  Is this the summer that everything changes on Fox Street?  And how is Mo going to handle it?  A great little story about learning to resist change or roll with the punches.  Very enjoyable.
