THE SUMMER OF HAMMERS AND ANGELS

The story of an amazing summer in a girl's life, a summer of surprises and challenges, of shocks and recovery, of discoveries and friendship, and of loneliness and community.

"Wiersbitzky explores themes of family, home, and what it means to be good neighbors in small-town Tucker's Ferry, W. Va., through the observant eyes of feisty narrator Delia....Down-to-earth life struggles combine with inspiring generosity of spirit in this uplifting debut."
--Publishers Weekly
