Eight-year-old Eleanor is moving into a new home, and she’s not happy about it. She doesn’t want to live in a house where someone else lives in the apartment over them. Happily, the family above them includes a 7-year-old boy named Owen, and he’s pretty cool. Owen agrees to help Eleanor with her secret plan to move back to her old house. In the meantime, their friendship blossoms. Eventually Eleanor learns what “home” is really about, and that God stays with us wherever we go.
This sweet and humorous chapter book is perfect for readers the same age as Owen and Eleanor, especially if they are fans of Narnia or Star Wars. (Sparkhouse Family)
