A Soft Place to Land / Janae Marks

12-year-old Joy Taylor has recently realized she already knows what her dream career is–a film score composer! Unfortunately, her family has had to downsize things due to her father’s job loss, which means no more piano lessons and no more big house to even put such a large instrument. In their new apartment complex, however, Joy meets some great new friends who introduce her to a special hidden room in the building in which they can all relax and be themselves. Joy even finds a way to make some money for music lessons—until everything that could possibly go wrong, does! A warm, cozy read for ages 8 and up.
