Tuesday, January 21, 2020 - 7:00pm

Nineteen-year-old Sally Miyake can’t read, but she has a keen eye for detail. Her life at Sunnyside Plaza, a group home for adults with developmental disabilities, is upended when two beloved residents die in quick succession—and one more becomes dangerously ill. Is this a series of unfortunate coincidences, or is something more sinister going on? If more people are indeed in danger, will the public pay attention? Putting her observational skills to the test, Sal is determined to figure out what’s happening. Based on the author’s experiences working in a group home, this empathetic novel by the host of NPR’s Weekend Edition demonstrates the endlessly rich world of a quick-witted, infectiously kind protagonist. Ages 10-13.
