I really enjoyed this story about family and forgiveness Cat is always taking care of her younger brother Chicken for their mom and it’s not easy Chicken is autistic and that make him a bit challenging for most people He gets upset easily and has a tendency to run off in public places But his sister Cat is the most responsible older sister and she does a great job looking out for him The only problem is she is always responsible for him I really fell in love with CaterpillarWhen plans change unexpectedly the two siblings end up at their grandparents for a few weeks during summer break in North Carolina This sounds great but they’ve never even met them before At first it’s uncomfortable and awkward but over time a relationship is formed and the kids fall in love with the island and their newly discovered grandparents Cat even gets to be a kid again as she learn to fish with her grandpa for a fishing contest coming up I loved this book Such a feel good middle grade story I highly recommend it Thank you to Bloomsbury Children’s Books and NetGalley for this ARC My opinions are my own

G three weeks with grandparents they never knew For the first time in years Cat has the opportunity to be a kid again and the journey she takes shows that even the most broken or strained relationships can be healed if people take the time to walk in one another's shoe. Kids who take on adult responsibilities and the weight of the world and their loved ones on their shoulders are if you haven't noticed kind of my weak spot Cat was exactly the type of character that I find oh so easy to fall in love with and even easier to cheer for This was a wonderful story about family and love heartache and mending fences Oh and fishing too Highly recommended

Caterpillar Summer review ï 9 ¶ Cat and her brother Chicken have always had a very special bond Cat is one of the few people who can keep Chicken happy When he has a meltdown she's the one who scratches his back and reads his favorite story She's the one who knows what Chicken needs Since their mom has had to work double hard to keep their family afloAs had to work double hard to keep their family afloat after their father passed away Cat has been the glue holding her family togetherBut even the strongest glue sometimes struggles to hold When a summer trip doesn't go according to plan Cat and Chicken end up spendin. If you're looking for something with heart humor tremendously likable characters and adorable artwork to boot look no further Cat is a fully realized and highly sympathetic heroine determined to keep her younger brother Chicken safe even as she sometimes resents having to do so Her conflicting emotions are very real as is the portrayal of Chicken's autism The relationship between Cat and her grandfather is my favorite but all the relationships are memorable and powerful Can't wait to see what this debut author comes up with next
