Read full description of the books:Hobbs Crane doesn’t like distractions. He lives for football, rules the basketball court, and does his best to avoid the neighbor girl with the Jupiter-sized crush on him. With a new kid out to steal his starting basketball position, Hobbs needs to feel in control again. Then Hobbs finds a boy living inside a giant blue spruce on an empty city lot who becomes the biggest distraction of all. How long has he been there? Where did he come from? And why does he seem to be following Hobbs?
The boy named Up is in survival mode. Leaving his real name and a neglectful home life behind, Up is running away to Florida to find his older sister who left home years ago. But he’s hungry and desperate, and he finds the overgrown evergreen next to the old factory the perfect hideout until he makes a plan.
Can Hobbs and Up help each other face their own uncertain futures while forging an unlikely friendship? Or are they too different?
Read information about the authorDawn Malone graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in journalism, and worked as a newspaper reporter in Illinois and Wisconsin before she started writing exclusively for children. Her stories have been published in Highlights for Children, Pockets, as well as other children’s magazines, and she’s a contributor to Chicken Soup for the Soul Think Positive for Kids. Dawn’s middle-grade manuscript, BINGO SUMMER, was awarded an SCBWI Work-In-Progress grant in 2007, and debuted in May 2014. When she’s not writing, Dawn collects antique valentines, loves hiking if someone carries her backpack, and substitute teaches preschool through high school because she loves to eavesdrop for story ideas. She has yet to be caught. She lives in central Illinois with her husband, three kids and the dog, birds, and turtle her kids brought home for her to care for. She doesn’t mind the animals; they’re a rapt audience when she reads her work aloud.
