Rourke is hoping for a perfect seventh grade year but he’s a boy who worries—a lot. It affects his friendships, his sleep, and his stomach. In a story of compassion and unexpected discoveries, Rourke’s worries ease and he realizes no one’s life is perfect—just different.

2021 release!

A tale of friendship, empathy and a LOT of hair! –There’s not much Claire’s hair can’t do. It’s a jump rope, it ties up bad guys, and only needs washing once a year! But can her wild and wacky tresses make her best friend laugh again?

Illustrated By: Sara Weingartner
