  • Book Summary:
    Whether she likes it or not, ten-year-old Piper Lee DeLuna is about to get a new family. Four years after the plane Piper's daddy was piloting disappeared, her mama is remarrying. The way Piper sees it, Mama's being plain disloyal. Besides, who'd want to get stuck with a prison guard for a stepdad and that weenie, Ginger, for a stepsister? But when Piper Lee hatches a foolproof plan to get the wedding called off, it quickly spirals out of control. And by the time Piper realizes what she’s done—and just how much she really cares about her new family—it might be too late. Told in Piper Lee's irresistible Southern voice, A Smidgen of Sky is about new families and new beginnings.
    Author Bio:
    Dianna Dorisi Winget writes fiction and non-fiction for young readers. She is a life-long resident of the Pacific Northwest and lives in the mountains of North Idaho with her husband and daughter. A Smidgen of Sky is her first novel.


    A Smidgen of Sky is a wonderful story many children will be able to relate to. It is hard when a family changes and children have new moms and dads in their lives, and possibly new brothers and sisters. Piper Lee is a great character that children will be able to understand, but they will see, more importantly, how she will reach out to children and give them hope about new beginnings once she looks past her own wants and demands, and sees the greater picture.

    The author creates a delightfully relateable story in this 208 page middle grade novel.
