Rubber Houses

Ellen Yeomans

from the book...

A typical teenager, Kit lives a happy, normal life involving friends, boys, and a loving family. She and her younger brother, Buddy, are incredibly close despite their age difference, connected by a shared love of baseball and math. But then tragedy strikes, and the family struggles to survive. Told in spare, lyrical verse, Rubber Houses is a powerful novel that perfectly captures the intense pain of the loss of a loved one, and the slow but gradual hope of living again and finding one's way back home.
