How would you like to be a middle child, squashed between a grumpy older sister and a genius, prodigy-of-a-younger sister? Well, Piper Reed didn't like it much, either, but there was nothing she could do about it. There was also nothing she could do about being a Navy brat. As her daddy, Chief, always said, "When a man joins the Navy, his family joins the Navy."
When Chief was reassigned to Pensacola, Florida, the whole family had to accept their orders and move...again. Leaving their home in San Diego would be hard enough for Piper, but she also had to leave her Gypsy Club, her tree house, all her friends, AND start over in a new school...in October! What would her teacher do when she found out about her problem?
But first she had to survive the long car trip. Would the songs and games help make things bearable? Would she get a room of her own? Would she have a tree house? And, what is the secret that Mom and Chief were keeping from them, anyway?
Piper Reed, Navy Brat, gives a funny and insightful look into the life of a young girl who makes the best of living...and moving...in a Navy family. You will love going along for the ride!
