About this deal

When baby Ben's career as a model is lanched, she is going to tell her partner - but the time is never right. Instead, the reader shares a truly three-dimensional experience where the word "miracle" regains its stark significance and a "mystical vision" expands our world. I can appreciate the fact that everyone has eye-openers in life and that those instances can be very hard to deal with at this age, but I see enough of this every single day. Then, something serious happens to Toni's father, and Toni has to stay in Manhattan with her older sister Martine.

I love how the focus isn't on events happening bam, bam, bam all in a neat row and you know, Hey, it's Saturday and Toni's going bowling, then hey, the very next day, this and this happens as a result, blahblah, then the next day this happens. As depicted in Goode's historical paintings, various youngsters--and their parents--employ assorted colorful modes of transportation to converge on grandma's for a turn-of-the-century family reunion. From the early morning of a new day to afternoon nap time to the evening bath and bedtime, a baby's life is sometimes quiet, sometimes busy, and always filled with baby love.When journalist Nina fills in a lonely hearts ad, she doesn't expect it to lead to an unplanned baby, gossipy coffee mornings and a dull-as-ditchwater partner. There is actually a good story here that illustrates how to deal, or not deal as the case may be, with family skeletons in the closet, and with changes in friendships. The ending is hopeful, and everything finally works out as Toni deals openly and honestly with her issues so that she can start to accept and forgive.

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. She illustrated several books by Cynthia Rylant including When I Was Young in the Mountains, a Caldecott Honor Book.It is not unlike expecting Adam, except instead of Downs Syndrome her child has a much more rare craniofacial disease, Apert Syndrome. Gordon wrote that Mazer "has the skill to reveal the human qualities in both ordinary and extraordinary situations as young people mature. Steve goes off on a motorcycle trip to Alaska, and Jerrine takes Julie and Heather to spend the whole summer with Julie’s Aunt Wendy in California. Facing" the situation has given our family a strength and insight into what is really important in this life which we might not otherwise have had.
