MY EXTRAORDINARY SUMMER WITH TESS

What a start to the family vacation! Ten-year-old Sam is vacationing with his family on the Dutch island of Terschelling and his older brother Jorre breaks his leg on the first day. It’s a pain to Jorre, but a blessing to Sam. Why? Because it leads to Sam meeting Tess, who is chaotic and fascinating in equal measure. She has a crazy plan - to locate her father, who doesn’t even know he has a daughter, within just one week - and she needs Sam’s help in pulling off this huge caper. A wonderfully strange week ensues, full of contradictory emotions and adventures, in which the kids pose life’s big questions. A witty and profound coming-of-age story.

Recommended for ages 9 and up
