Barbara Compton's twelfth summer is supposed to be the best ever-and then her world humpty-dumpties when her parents die. Not only must she deal with her older sister (aka Old Grim and Gruesome) as her guardian, but she's threatened with the additional losses of her home, old friends, and her dog. Barbara resists all attempts that would force her to take giant steps into her future. How can she hang on to what's left of the only world she's ever known? Set in the 50s, life might seem simpler then, but death is never easy. Even so,humor still finds its way into the sisters' lives.

Customer Reviews

Laugh, cry, enjoy

Giant Steps surprised me. It is not only a good read, it is one that everyone experiencing loss and grief could learn from. The main inhabitants of this book and story are young, but they have very grown-up problems to deal with. Barbara and her sister Kyla come alive through the attention to detail and humor that the author(s) use. I cared about them. And I think everyone who reads this book will care too. Read it, give it to a friend, and if you have a young person in your life, make a gift of this delightful book. ~~Marilyn Stacy, Dallas psychotherapist, Family and marriage counselor, and Professor Emeritus of Richland College
