Caterpillar Summer / Gillian McDunn

Cat is a girl who knows all about the importance of looking out for your family.  She lost her dad to cancer, and now is helping to take care of her younger brother who has special needs.  She loves her brother very much and feels very responsible for anything that happens to him, but when a big change in family vacation plans occurs, she realizes that sometimes it’s okay to take care of just Cat.  A great read about family, friends, and special summer places.  For ages 8 and up.
