9780316210461: Courage for Beginners

Twelve-year-old Mysti Murphy wishes she were a character in a book. If her life were fictional, she'd magically know how to deal with the fact that her best friend, Anibal Gomez, has abandoned her in favor of being a "hipster." She'd be able to take care of everyone when her dad has to spend time in the hospital. And she'd certainly be able to change her family's secret.
Seventh grade is not turning out the way Mysti had planned. With the help of a hot-hair balloon, her new friend Rama Khan--and maybe even the heroes of the Texas Revolution--can she find the courage to change?

About the Author:

Karen Harrington was born in Texas, where she still lives with her husband and children. She is the author of Sure Signs of Crazy and Courage for Beginners.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* For Mysti Murphy, being in seventh grade takes enormous courage. Her agoraphobic mother never leaves the house; her father falls from a tree and is hospitalized in a comatose state; and her best and only friend is “conducting a social experiment,” ignoring and even making fun of her at school. In this moving follow-up to Sure Signs of Crazy (2013), Harrington returns to similar themes and introduces another appealing protagonist, the red-haired, joke-telling Mysti. From her father, Mysti has learned to deflect difficulties with humor, but from her mother, she has learned fears—for instance, it takes Mysti more than a month to think of solving the family’s food problem by walking to a nearby store. Mysti often sees herself as a character in a book, and such thoughts are italicized to create a scene-setting narration: “Here is a girl who may have more hidden genius than she realized.” The heat of the Texas setting and the inevitable bullying and jockeying for social position in her middle school add to the oppressive atmosphere. Scarf-wearing Rama Khan, a neighbor and new friend, provides welcome support, as does her teacher of Texas history. A wrenching and rewarding read. Grades 5-8. --Kathleen Isaacs

Descripción Little, Brown Company, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. 12-year-old Mysti Murphy wishes she was a character in a book. If her life was fictional, she d magically know how to deal with the fact that her best friend, Anibal Gomez, no longer wants to talk to her during school hours. She d be able to take care of her family when her dad has to spend time in the hospital. And she d certainly be able to change the secret fact about her family: her mother is agoraphobic and never leaves the house.School used to be the only escape for Mysti, but now that Anibal is trying to make friends with the popular crowd, Mysti is left alone at Loser Island - the cafeteria table with misfits. At first Mysti can t stand the other kids there: know-it-all Wayne Kovok and standoffish new girl Rama Khan. But as Anibal changes for the worse, Mysti realises being a secret friend is no kind of friend at all - and Rama and Wayne might understand her better than she thought.Ultimately, Mysti begins to see that her mother is afraid of everything, but Mysti can be brave in little ways even if she s not a character in a book: by standing up to Anibal when he s bullying her, by walking to the grocery store on her own when her mother can t leave the house, or by visiting her father at the hospital. And bit by bit, Mysti realises she s not alone after all. Nº de ref. de la librería ABZ9780316210461
