Britta and the Boys
Written by by Katie McIntyre
Illustrated by Dan Romens
Friendship | Growing Up | Middle Grade
For ages: 7-12
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Strong-willed and spirited, Britta Christine Stark has a unique way of looking at the world—sometimes to the dismay of her parents and teachers. She prefers to play Princess Leia than to play with dolls, and she’d rather build a Rebel Alliance Base than build her jump-roping skills. She longs for her older sister’s attention, but when she gets it, it isn’t always for the best (although it is always memorable). When an unexpected friend comes along, Britta finally learns the meaning of true friendship that endures throughout her life.
Come along with Britta as she reminisces about her childhood adventures in small-town Wisconsin. Meet her parents and her sister, Colleen. And learn for yourself why the boys made all the difference in Britta’s world.
