9780545562003: The Swift Boys & Me

The lyrical and moving middle-grade debut from YA author Kody Keplinger!

Eleven-year-old Nola Sutton has been best friends and neighbors with the Swift boys for practically her whole life. There's the youngest, Kevin, who never stops talking; the oldest, Brian, who's always kind and calm; and then there's Canaan, the ringleader and Nola's best-best friend. Together, they have a summer of fun adventures planned.

But then everything changes overnight.

When the boys' dad leaves without even saying good-bye, it completely destroys the Swift family, and all Nola can do is watch. She tries to hold on to them, but they are changing. Kevin stops talking, Canaan starts hanging out with mean boys, and Brian is never around. Nola just wants things to go back to the way they were -- the way they've always been.

Is Nola strong enough to save the Swift boys from themselves, or has she lost them forever?

About the Author:

Kody Keplinger was born and raised in rural western Kentucky. She always enjoyed writing and began working on “novels” when she was eleven. She wrote her first published young adult work, The DUFF, during her senior year of high school. Since then, she has written Shut Out and A Midsummer's Nightmare, as well as the forthcoming title Goldfish. Kody currently lives in New York City and writes full time.

From Booklist:

In Keplinger’s poignant middle-grade debut, 11-year-old Nola’s carefree world is shattered when her best friend’s father takes off without explanation. Nola and the three Swift brothers, who live in the other half of their duplex, have always been friends, but Nola is closest with Canaan. She and Canaan do everything together, from sneaking turns on a neighbor’s trampoline to sharing secrets. Nola is unprepared for how sweet Canaan changes when his father leaves. Instead of confiding in her, he is sullen and angry, hanging out with the bullies who call her Nasty Nola and playing mean pranks on their neighbors. Nola is crushed, especially when her mother announces she is getting married and moving them to another neighborhood. Nola is both happy and sad, but Canaan doesn’t even seem to care. Keplinger gives appropriate gravity to Nola’s feelings of hurt and helplessness, while tempering her distress with reassuring outlets in her parents and two new friends. A believably bittersweet ending delivers an emotional understanding of the necessary changes we all undergo while growing up. Grades 3-6. --Krista Hutley
