The Best Worst Thing

R 99.00

Front door locked, kitchen door locked, living room windows closed. Nobody in the closet, nobody under the beds.

Ten year-old Maggie sees injustice and danger everywhere--in her history textbook, on the playground, in her neighbourhood, on the news. How can anyone be safe when there's a murderer on the loose, a bully about to get a gun for his 12th birthday, rabbits being held captive for who-knows-what next door, and an older sister being mysteriously consumed by adolescence?

Maggie doesn't like it one bit, so she devises intricate ways of controlling her own world and a larger, more dangerous plan for protecting everyone else.

The Best Worst Thing is a perceptive novel about learning the limits of what you can control, and the good--sometimes even best--things that can come of finally letting go.
