The Center Of Everything - A Middle Grade Story of A Girl Dealing With Loss, Love and the Power of Friendship

The Center Of Everything by Linda Urban

For Ruby Pepperdine, the “center of everything” is on the rooftop of Pepperdine Motors in her donut-obsessed town of Bunning, New Hampshire, stargazing from the circle of her grandmother Gigi’s hug. That’s how everything is supposed to be—until her grandmother dies, Ruby messes up and things spin out of control. But she has one last hope. It all depends on what happens on Bunning Day, when the entire town will hear Ruby read her winning essay. And it depends on her twelfth birthday wish—unless she messes that up too. Can Ruby’s wish set everything straight in her topsy-turvy world?

What's LGBTQ about it? Ruby’s best friend Lucy has two dads. But it's not really a plot point, it just is.

My thanks to Yapha for the heads-up on this book including two dads!  Add your review of "The Center of Everything" in comments!
