Who is Ida B. Applewood? She is a fourth grader like no other, living a life like no other, with a voice like no other, and her story will resonate long after you have put this book down. How does Ida B cope when outside forces—life, really—attempt to derail her and her family and her future? She enters her Black Period, and it is not pretty. But then, with the help of a patient teacher, a loyal cat and dog, her beloved apple trees, and parents who believe in the same things she does (even if they sometimes act as though they don't), the resilience that is the very essence of Ida B triumph...and Ida B. Applewood takes the hand that is extended and starts to grow up. This first novel is both very funny and extraordinarily moving, and it introduces two shining stars—Katherine Hannigan and Ida B. Applewood.

  A Fantastic Book!
Abigail Deppe of Aloha, OR, 7/6/2016
While Ida B is not a mystery or fantasy story, Katherine Hannigan has made this story exciting and fun. Ida B is a home-schooled, fourth-grade, single child living in the country with her mother and father. Ida B is living a happy life filled with fun when suddenly disaster strikes and Ida B is forced to take on a new and terrible enemy. One that causes all excitement to leave Ida B's life. School. When reading this tale you are sure to be kept flipping the pages for hours. If Ida B could be described in one word (which it can't) the word would be: amazing!
