In two weeks, he will say good-bye to his friends and leave behind that pretty girl with the dark dark eyes. Longing fills the time before moving day as Fletch yearns to keep life just the way it is. Even defrosting the freezer is hard; a "thick white layer of sadness" covers everything. Hetch worries that when he moves he Won't be from anywhere. He'll be "just a tumbleweed blowing across a dusty road." Ralph Fletcher's heartfelt, autobiographical poems are beautifully illustrated by Jennifer Emery and speak to anyone who has ever moved far away. Book jacket. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Fletch's new Diamondback mountain bike and his brother's new hockey outfit are unexpected gifts from Dad. When Dad announces, ''We're going to move to Ohio,'' Fletch's heart drops to his stomach. Leaving means selling the house, abandoning his best friends, and living next to Lake Erie. . . . Hey, didn't that lake catch on fire? Ralph Feltcher's poems evoke what's hard about moving away as well as what makes moving day, well, maybe, okay.
